Craig Smith - Wonky Donkey

upsurge festival 2017 - sold out  

Bring the kids along for a story, a sing along and some general hilarity with acclaimed author and singer-songwriter Craig Smith.

Craig is an APRA children’s award winning, full time musician and author living in Queenstown New Zealand. His success in music has been across many genres and includes his children’s music as well as his stories in song, turned into award  winning children’s books.

The much-loved Wonky Donkey shot to  hanky-panky stinky-dinky fame and Craig is now  in big demand around the country with his guitar and his songs for ‘the the less mature’. His other stories in songbooks are Willbee the Bumblebee, Kaha the Kea, My Daddy Ate an Apple and the recently released Square Eyes. Craig’s book sales total nearly a million copies worldwide.

His shows are madcap, fun and full of children and parents laughing , dancing and singing. Craig has performed at many of Australia’s major book based Arts Festivals as well at festivals throughout New Zealand.
