Ken Galipeau is a collector of stories, songs and poems that touch our hearts and funny bone. The stories and songs in Ken's eclectic repertoire celebrate the wonder, absurdity, pain and joy of life, imagination, and the soul. He presents them with energy, enthusiasm, and a sincerity that makes you tingle through and through--the feeling you have after a belly laugh or a chill in the bones from a unsettling ghost story. Ken's stories and songs are drawn from contemporary and traditional sources and sung as if they were his own. "The pieces I perform show how we are all connected. They allow us to feel good about who we are, where we come from, and where we are going".

"Ken provided a wonderful multi-cultural, interactive program that EVERYONE enjoyed from our preschoolers and school-age kids to their little brothers and sisters, to moms, dads, babysitters, grandma - and more! ... Kept the audience involved in fun - listening, singing, hopping and dancing - for well over an hour! Definitely worth a visit to your library!!!" --Christine Lopez, Children's Librarian, Milltown Public Library
