About Us

Margo RandomMargo Random is the originator and driving force behind Blueberry Playsongs. She is a N.Y.- born performer/ musician with a background in the theatre and live and recorded music. Margo studied at the State University of New York and the Welsh College of Music and Drama before embarking on a career in acting and then working with her own bands in both the pop and jazz fields.

When her daughter Abigail was born, performing took a subtle shift and babies became the focus: "Blueberry came about because I wanted to give my own daughter an early exposure to live music. I took my guitar to our playgroup one day and sang the babies some songs and found an amazingly favourable response. Blueberry Playsongs was born!"
