Fambly Ramble w/ Justin Roberts & Red Yarn

The Fambly Ramble is a new Portland concert series that pairs acclaimed national “kindie” (kids + indie) acts with local entertainers to create engaging experiences for Portland families. Each event also features interactive art projects, activities, and food & drink from the host venue.

Two-time GRAMMY Nominated Justin Roberts is truly one of the “all-stars” of the indie family music scene. For nearly 20 years, Roberts has been creating the soundtrack to families’ lives, helping kids navigate the joys and sorrows of growing up and parents remember their own childhoods. Along with his band, The Not Ready for Naptime Players, they have travelled the globe, from Hong Kong to New York, and Miami to Seattle.

Red Yarn is a dynamic family performer who weaves folksongs and puppetry into engaging shows for all ages. With his energetic performances and critically acclaimed folk-rock recordings, this red-bearded bard shares positive values while reinvigorating American folklore for younger generations. Red & his wife Ms. Jessie will be performing songs from their new album “Born in the Deep Woods.”
