For more than forty years, Sharon Hampson, a member of Canada’s much-loved trio of family entertainers Sharon, Lois & Bram, has entertained families across North America. When Lois stepped away from performing in 2000, Sharon & Bram carried on as a duo. Through their touring, their gold, platinum and multi-platinum recordings, their critically acclaimed television series The Elephant Show and Skinnamarink TV, they have sung their way into the hearts and homes of young and old alike.Following Bram’s retirement and with his encouragement, Sharon and her daughter Randi are continuing to share the music of Sharon, Lois and Bram with fans and friends, old and new. Sharon and Randi have been singing together since Randi was three. More recently, when Lois was unable to make a holiday charity concert performance, she suggested Randi to take her place. Randi accepted the opportunity and performed on stage, alongside her mother. Randi is the author of Sharon, Lois & Bram’s Skinnamarink and the Producer of Sharon & Bram’s recently released and Juno Nominated recording, Sharon & Bram and Friends. Randi’s song lyrics and voice can be heard on several of the album’s tracks and fans had the chance to see her performing live, countless times throughout Sharon & Bram’s 2019 tour. Sharon and Randi are excited to be singing the songs of Sharon, Lois & Bram (many introduced to the trio by Randi), with a new generation of musical friends. Randi is excited to be working on the next Sharon, Lois & Bram book – One Elephant Went Out To Play which is scheduled to be released by Penguin Random House in the spring of 2022.When Randi isn’t performing with her mother or hanging out with her sons, she is Board Chair of Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto, an organization that supports families dealing with cancer and she works as a family lawyer. Randi recently produced a video of their recording of Talk About Peace which has been shared around the world and viewed more than 140,000 times.
