The Wiggles

Wiggle Pop!

The world’s most popular children’s band The Wiggles have announced their biggest album of the year, Wiggle Pop!

Set for release on August 31, Wiggle Pop! is an entertaining and child-friendly tribute to some of The Wiggles’ favourite Pop, Country and Folk artists from over the years. And it may just be The Wiggles’ catchiest and Wiggliest music collection for many years!

With brand new songs written to inspire dancing, singing, story-telling and listening, this album is one for the whole family to enjoy with the young listener! There are nods to Johnny Cash, Madonna, Prince, Nana Mouskouri, Elvis, Tiny Tim, Willie Nelson, The Beatles and many more. Wiggle Pop! features many varied styles of music and reasons to dress up, and even a duet with Australian music star, Dan Sultan.

In an exciting year, The Wiggles have soared to new heights. Fresh from a successful tour of the United States and Canada, and with their TV series now broadcast in over 190 countries, the band have also recently announced the ‘Wiggle Pop! Big Show’ Arena tour, which will be hitting stages around Australia later this year.

Keep an eye out for a companion Wiggle Pop! DVD to be released in November. Wiggle Pop! … you can’t stop!

Release
The Huntington Estate Music Festival is one of the brightest stars in Australia’s musical firmament. For three decades, it has been bringing together top-flight musicians from around the country and around the world to present a breathtaking array of chamber music masterpieces, both iconic favourites and delicious new discoveries. Presented by the Huntington Estate Winery in association with Musica Viva Australia, and held in the winery’s Barrel Room, one of the most remarkable and surprising music venues in the world, the Festival is a delight to audiences and musicians alike.After 30 stellar years of exceptional music-making, however, the 2019 Festival will be the last, with Huntington Estate owners Tim and Nicky Stevens reluctantly deciding that their grapes – and their young family – must come first. To mark this significant occasion, ABC Classic is proud to delve into its broadcast archives to present this selection of some of the Festival’s most memorable performances across a typically diverse and intriguing range of repertoire: from Schubert and Dvořák to Bach’s astonishing eldest son Wilhelm Friedemann and Australian composers Ross Edwards and Ian Munro.It was Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra who began the Festival and established it as a serious contender on the world stage – and the hottest concert tickets in the country! This album includes superb three recordings from those early years: music of Mendelssohn, Brahms and Percy Grainger.In 2006, the ACO passed the baton to Musica Viva and Artistic Director Carl Vine, opening up the Festival’s artist roster to an extraordinary range of musicians, both local and international. From among the literally hundreds of thrilling performances, this album features New York-based Australian pianist Andrea Lam, Russian-Armenian clarinettist Narek Arutyunian, the rich bass-baritone of Teddy Tahu Rhodes and Vienna’s acclaimed Eggner Trio, along with regular Festival guests the Goldner String Quartet and the rising stars of the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) Chamber Orchestra.…/2The CD of this compilation is available exclusively at the Festival itself, but for all those who can’t make the trip to Mudgee, ABC Classic is releasing the full album as a digital album, for download and streaming, so that audiences all around the world can share in the celebration. TRACKLISTING  1     MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 3 ‘Scottish’: II.
