The Nancy Walker trio Big Shoulders. The Zucchini Brothers. And that's just for starters. Nancy's voice has found a home with the trio, whether singing her own melodies, classics from the American songbook or selections from the deep catalog of the Old Town School of Folk Music. Have you lived until you've heard Nancy sing "Bury Me Beneath The Willow?" She's just an comfortable laying back and letting Larry and Sam stretch out on an original instrumental, with Larry's guitar snaking along Sam's expansive drum beat.

Field, Barb Balloon Art! Performing Arts- Clowning,
Visual Arts- Other
BJ and Company will custom design the right program for your needs. We have worked extensively with children and families and performed hundreds of shows. BJ will encourage the participants to have fun while they use their own creative ideas to design unique balloon sculptures. She will show them how to prepare the balloons and a few different ways to twist them. Then they will need to think and plan ahead. This involves a little bit of painless, hands-on deliberating about dividing and fractions … how much balloon do I have left to twist how many legs??? Although some participants may want to learn how to make a standard balloon dog, BJ prefers to encourage them be creative on their own and see what they can design. THIS PROGRAM IS BEST SUITED FOR SECOND GRADE TO ADULTS. www.bjandcompany.com
