Red Yarn brings folksongs, puppetry to local libraries

Join Red Yarn and his barnyard friends at local libraries for a frolicking good time and live music.

Red Yarn and friends will be performing at three branches of the North Olympic Library System (NOLS): • 10:30-11:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 23, inside the Forks Library, 171 S. Forks Ave.; • 6-7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, inside the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St.; • 10:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, at the stage behind the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave. (in case of inclement weather, the show will be held indoors at the Sequim Boys & Girls Club, 400 W. Fir St.)

Red Yarn is Andy Furgeson, a family performer who weaves folk songs and puppetry into an engaging show for all ages. With his performances and folk-rock recordings, he shares positive values “while reinvigorating the American folklore tradition for younger generations,” show organizers note. Furgeson is a musician, puppeteer and educator based in Portland, Ore.
