Sharon, Lois & Bram


Skinnamarink from Paul Leary, Founder “Grand Puba”  -- It all started in 1978 when the three performers - singers who knew each other from the Mariposa Folk Festival - decided to record an album together. They produced 5,000 vinyl records (One Elephant, Deux Éléphants) using $20,000 collected from generous family members and friends. And the rest, as they say, is history with more than 4 million records sold, 2 hit TV series, concert tours, specials, appearances and a DVDs.
