Red Yarn (aka Andy Furgeson) is a Texas-born, Oregon-based family performer who weaves folksongs and puppetry into high-energy shows for all ages. With his engaging performances, lush folk-rock recordings, and playful music videos, this red-bearded bard is reinvigorating American folklore for younger generations.
With traditional and original songs blending folk, country, blues and rock, RedYarn’s dynamic sound is both rooted and modern. Touring in support of his fifth album, Red Yarn's Old Barn, Red Yarn will encourage audiences to sing, dance, stomp, clap, and celebrate the multicultural musical heritage of the USA. As Redleads audiences through the landscapes of American folklore (depicted on beautiful quilted backdrops), he introduces his critter friends – lovable, handmade puppets – along the way.
