Booking Red Yarn
Red Yarn (aka Andy Furgeson) weaves folksongs and puppetry into high-energy, interactive shows for family audiences. Whether solo, in a duo with his wife Jessie, with collaborators, or with a full band, Red Yarn will 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 (depicted on beautiful quilted backdrops), he introduces his Critter friends along the way. These handmade animal puppets provide comic relief, calm and tender moments, and valuable social-emotional lessons.
Red Yarn has performed at Austin City Limits Festival, South by Southwest, Stagecoach Country Music Festival, Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, Symphony Space, Pickathon, Northwest String Summit, and libraries and children’s museums across the country. Accolades for Red Yarn’s albums include NAPPA Gold, Parents’ Choice, and Fids & Kamily Music Awards, and frequent play on SiriusXM Kids Place Live.
