Cruise, Jim Spoon Man - "Dig Into Reading" Literature- Authors,
Music,
Performing Arts- Theater
With the theme "Dig Into Reading", I'm thinking of a cereal bowl with books inside and 2 spoons digging in. I am a family musical interactive comedian and I'm also a published author. My book is called "Spoon Boy". I also offer a workshop for teens and adults called BYOS (Bring Your Own Silverware). My web site is www.SpoonMan.biz . I have my library brochure, video clips and info about my book on my web site. My program is around 45 minutes. With multiple bookings (on the same day), I can be as inexpensive as $300 per show. I don't mind driving an hour or more between libraries.

Combine the soothing tones of three part vocal harmony with the delicate arpeggios of the Irish harp, calming flow of breath through the wooden flute and penny whistle, and the steady pulse of bodhran (Irish drum) and guitar to make this trio of women, “Cuisle Mo Chroí” (say Cushla Ma Chree) one of the premier folk groups in the Rochester NY area. The three, Patricia Carey, Mary Lester, and Cathy McGrath, have appeared nine times in the Rochester Irish Festival, have opened for “Cherish the Ladies”, and are often found at Irish music sessions in the area.
