Duo Puts On Crazy, Colorful Rock Show For Kids

Posted: January 19, 2018 at 1 a.m.

Eureka Springs performers Bobby Matthews and Virginia Ralph — children’s duo mömandpöp — debuted their energetic and colorful variety show in 2015. If you haven’t seen them perform live, it’s possible you’ve heard their hit “Take Care” on the Serious XM channel “Kids Place Live.”

When Bobby Matthews and Virginia Ralph set out to create a movement and music class for children -- after they'd seen something similar in Memphis -- it was only a short leap to a full-blown show. The variety show format and "wackadoo" characters developed quickly as the husband-and-wife duo combined their skill sets -- Matthews' experience with songwriting and performance and Ralph's time spent in nonprofit theater, both with a background in arts integration for children. The result was "The mömandpöp Show."
