About the Artist

Chris brings his love of music to young audiences and tours his Earth, Seas & Air and Celebrate! concerts for children in festivals, concert halls and schools across Canada. He was performed at the Toronto Jazz Festival, has headlined First Night at the Skydome/Rogers Centre, and performed at Roy Thompson Hall with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Closer to home he has performed at the Ottawa Tulip Festival, the NAC, Museum of Civilization, and the Ottawa Children’s Festival.

Songs often tell stories, and I think people have a hunger to learn about other people’s lived experiences.

People love this artist

I want to thank you for yesterday's concert opportunity with Chris McKhool! It was amazing. It was by far one of the best experiences our students have had this year. His thorough ways of reaching the audience with learning and artistic expression was admirable and inspiring. It's one we won't forget! Thank you again.
