Red Yarn (aka Andy Furgeson) weaves folksongs and puppetry into high-energy, interactive shows for family audiences. He'll have audiences singing, dancing, stomping, clapping, and celebrating the multicultural musical heritage of the USA. With traditional and original songs blending folk, rockabilly, country and blues, Red Yarn’s dynamic sound is both rooted and modern. As Red leads audiences through the landscapes of American folklore, he introduces his Critter friends along the way. These handmade animal puppets provide comic relief, calm and tender moments, and valuable social-emotional lessons.
