Ken Lonnquist

A funny, enjoyable songwriter from Wisconsin, Ken's performed professionally since his college days.​ In 1982 he won a national audition to become Minstrel for the Environment, writing and performing about nature, environmental and related issues in schools and colleges. On the college circuit he honed ​his skills at improvisation and topical humor (as heard on NPR, Air America, the CBC, Pacifica Radio). A series of recordings for adults and children followed, with recognition from Audubon, Parents Choice, American Library Assoc., Booklist, Childrens Music Web, Parents Guide To Childrens Media and others solidifying his reputation as a children's entertainer. Ken's love for musical theater found an outlet as composer for Children's Theater of Madison, where 15 productions of his full-scale musicals were presented. He travels with smaller shows with his musical troupe, and his charm and energy as a live performer remain the heart of his work.
