July news: Shows all over Oregon!

Happy summer! I hope your family is enjoying the sunshine and all the fun times that come with it. My summer is going great--I mostly finished my upcoming album, The Deep Woods (which I hope to release in September), and just returned from a much-needed vacation. Now I hit the ground running with library shows all over the state. I'm performing a new show called Red Yarn's Garden Tales, which combines some of my best stories, songs and puppets with new material (including a precious new critter named Gracie Groundhog). If you are in Portland, you can catch the debut at 3pm this Tuesday, July 9th at Northwest Library or in the suburbs throughout the summer. I'm also performing locally most weekends, including this Saturday, July 13 at 4:30pm during the Mississippi Street Fair.

Below you'll find all of my performance dates in July. If you have family or friends in the towns where I'm headed, please forward this along to them!

In August I'm leading two summer camps--"Puppetpalooza" week at KCLC from August 5-9 and "Friendly's Got Talent" music camp at Friendly House from August 19-23. If you're looking for a fun, creative option for your school age child, check out these camps.

You can get updates on my shows, album and other adventures by following me on FacebookTwitter & Instagram. I hope to see you and your family soon!
