Actor, singer and storyteller Lou Del Bianco has been working with children of all ages since 1982. According to the New York Times, Lou's dramatic approach to storytelling "puts pow into passivity!" The Parents Choice foundation states that "few performers excel as both storyteller and musician, but Lou Del Bianco is one who does." Lou's second release, “When I was a Kid" is "one of the most unique children's albums ever”, according to Billboard Magazine. Lou's other releases "A Little Bit Clumsy", "Around the World", and "Lost in School" have also been honored by Parent's Choice as well as NAPPA, BOOKLIST, CHILD Magazine, Family Fun and a slew of others!
Lou’s latest release, “Make a Good Choice!” is a Parents Choice award winner and is already making a splash in the educational community as an effective way to use storytelling to teach moral values.
Lou has performed all over the country, from the Tastes of Chicago to the Kravis Center to Carnegie Hall. His music video, "A Little Bit Clumsy", is presently playing on the Learning Channel. He has traveled the Northeast as an artist in residence for 17 years; performed in San Diego at the International Reading Association's annual convention; been a keynote speaker from North Carolina to Massachusetts.
On an educational level, Lou has been an artist-in-residence since 1987 and has worked in many schools alongside teachers to help improve literacy in the classroom. His Kinderart residency (created with his wife, Camille) was honored by New York State as a model program, and his story theater residency has reached thousands of elementary children all over the tri-state area. Lou’s latest venture, portraying Abraham Lincoln, is taking him all around the Northeast performing for audiences of all ages.
