Tanya Lipscomb, an award-winning, touring singer/song writer and mother of 3 developed a character named "Kiki the Eco Elf" in 2008. "Kiki" is bright, colourful, silly and highly enthusiastic!
She has released 3 independent children's albums since 2010, performed at 100s of festivals and family events and has shared the stage/opened for Charlotte Diamond, Fred Penner, Splash n' Boots and Bobs & Lolo.
It is her joy and passion to raise environmental awareness and promote sustainability as well as compassionate kindness, musical expression, creativity and joyful play. She captures audiences with up-beat music, engaging the crowd to sing along, clap, stomp and dance. Kiki involves young and old alike, with interactive games and story-telling and enthralls children (and the young at heart) with her larger than life stage presence, inspiring them to make positive, creative choices to better the world.
"Kiki the Eco Elf" delivered her first performance in the Spring of 2008, and since then has performed in schools, libraries, fairs, at Children's festivals, music festivals and family events across Canada.

"Mix one endearing and quirky elf, toe-tapping music and catchy lyrics to create a first class sing-a-long. Going green has never been so much fun!"
(Silver Creek Community Librarian)
"Not only is Kiki The Eco Elf a delight on stage, she is also a very talented musician whose songs carry powerful messages. The kids love her and readily join in the games, sing-a-longs and dance party. "Kiki" is fun AND informative! I would highly recommend her to event planning committees or festivals."

"My daughter and I are avid fans of Kiki's high energy, kid's entertainment. She brings to the stage a mixture of colour, beautiful music, humour and grace. My girl was up dancing along; she couldn't resist the interactive magic of Kiki's dramatic play. The costumes are fun and creative. Deffinitely a show to be enjoyed by those young and those young at heart!"
(Mother from Edmonton, Alberta)
"Kiki is a fantastic entertainer; great with children. Everyone that attended the performance had positive comments regarding her performance. I am looking forward to booking her again next year!"
(Cranbrook Summer Music Series)
"Artistically, the passion and standard she upholds for herself as an artist shine through in all of her music and stage antics, in the heartfelt lyrics of her original compositions, in the messages she conveys through her music and in her sheer radiance onstage. I marvel at her ability to connect so deeply with audience members of all ages in the versatility of her performances."
