Mrs H and the Sing-Along Band


Mixed Art Forma / Kids / Live Music / Gig / Gig Theatre / Other


Mrs H and the Sing-along Band is a collective of professional musicians united by their passion for bringing quality music to children and their families. We create music that reintroduces audiences to the joy of the 'sing-along'. Bringing together elements of Folk, Soul, Afro, Latin and Dub.

We create and perform live music events with a strong emphasis on audience participation, theatrical engagement and communal singing.
Unique in our field, we offer a rare experience in presenting music, which is at once accessible to children, while carrying the depth and energy to engross adults.
The Sing-along Band was founded in 2005 by Harriette Ashcroft with her mission to provide free, music drop ins for children and their carers. The Sing-along Band are made up of members from Red Snapper, Beth Orton, The Leisure Society and Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo.
The Band tour and perform in schools, libraries, elderly support centres, community/arts centres as well as making appearances at summer festivals and in 2015 three sell out shows at The Union Chapel, London to celebrate the launch of their book/album ‘Mrs H Sings’.
In 2018, supported by Arts Council England and Waltham Forest Council, we developed our intergenerational project ‘All Together Now’, bringing young families and older generations together through music.
