The Groundwork Music Orchestra


Neal Kassanoff is a writer of breadth and depth who has created a cannon of children's songs that reflect his love of song craft. These songs never stop with the good fun and the infectious hooks that adults usually enjoy right alongside their kids.

Joining Neal will be a number of players with whom Neal has worked for years on a variety of projects. Lauren Gurgiolo (guitar), Gray Parsons (drums) and Stewart Cochran (keys).

Groundwork's music is a staple in Austin area schools, and is incorporated into a variety of educational programs, from songwriting workshops to weekly classes.

Groundwork's spot on auditorium shores was a big hit at last year's festival, and inspired a great year of local shows for the band. This year's show promises to be another hit!
