The Oot n’ Oots

The Oot n’ Oots are a family band that makes music for your family. This JUNO-nominated group delivers an entertaining show for kids of every age. In performance, the Oots’ all-analogue rock show casts a spell of freedom, lightheartedness, and laughter. Their music draws on the wide history of rock n’ roll with a free-spirited musical performance of songs that are, by turns, wise and absurd.

The band includes 16-year-old Ruthie Cipes (described as “a force of nature” by Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child host, Bill Childs) with her dad Ez and uncles Ari, Gabe, and Matthew. Named “Children’s Artist of the Year” at the 2022 Western Canadian Music Awards, and they’ve been honoured on “best of lists” and with awards and nominations in Canada, the USA, and Australia. Come have some fun!
