Performing Arts- Storytelling
In THE perfect performance for your 2015 Every Hero Has A Story program, award-winning children's performer Story Laurie will feature stories and songs about kids who have done some amazing and inspiring things! Your summer readers will love learning about Sybil Ludington who, as a teenage girl, rode her horse all through a long rainy night to alert the American militia that, The British are burning Danbury! Muster at Ludington’s! We’ll have fun singing along to the song about the Lambeth children -- a group of Canadian kids who saved 'eleven fine maples standing in a row' from being cut down as they sat in the trees, swinging in the breeze. We’ll celebrate more well-known heroes, too -- like Malala Yousafzai, who won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize. And we’ll even sing a song celebrating the hero that is inside each of us. Engaging, participatory educational & fun!

Durst, James JAMES DURST: 'Hue Manatee's Quest' Music,
Nature- Environment,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Singer-songwriter James Durst presents a 1-man musical adventure, rich in humor, song & story to dramatize themes of environmental sustainability, unity in diversity, friendship & peace. The central characters Hue (as in 'color' or 'cry of alarm') Manatee and Flickati Cricket seek the wisdom of renowned change agent Leon Chameleon, only to be invited along on a journey to his ancestral homeland, the Galápagos. Along the way, they overcome numerous perils while meeting and sharing songs with Shining Eagle (Northern Hemisphere shaman of the Imáji Nation), a trio of dolphins, a whale threatened by a whaling ship, Ella Condor (Southern Hemisphere medicine woman of the Todos tribe), and a popular street-corner quintet known as Acapellago. Cameo appearances are made by Hansel & Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood & Goldilocks to populate Leon's parable explaining how our protagonists differ from the 'two-legged ones' in a 5-part tour de farce, 'Lost in the Kuda Shuda Woods.' Ideally suited for families with older children, as the humor employs wordplay and the music is sophisticated yet accessible. Imagine 'The Lion King' meets 'Candide.'

Booking, Unbound Marc Black - American Children Music,
I’ve developed a program that’s perfect for kids and grownups alike. I began developing it when my kids were very young. I had the idea to create a CD that featured lots of the great musicians singing songs their parents had sung to them, or that they sang to their kids. And, some cases, wrote for their kids. The resulting CD, American Children, was honored as the ‘American Library Association’s Best Children’s CD of the year.’ The CD featured performances by Richie Havens, Taj Mahal, John Sebastian, Peter Schickele (PDQ Bach), Maria Muldaur and many more. The stuff I write about in this genre ranges from a tune about Ziggy, my wacky wire haired fox terrier, to my love of coffee and baseball, and the importance of picking up litter. I also mix in songs from my childhood (in the sixties) for a program the family can all enjoy. In addition, I’m also available for expressive songwriting classes with kids of all ages. I love doing this!
