Crain, Nathan Brady Mister Loop / Brady Music Music
As a performer for mixed or adult audiences, Brady play upbeat original acoustic americana in several sub-genres. In doing this he uses a matrix of several looping stations to live capture (nothing pre-recorded) sounds and "stack" them into coherent, band sounding songs (percussion, bass, guitar, lead, and three part harmonies in many songs). This is a phenomenal show, as astounding as it is entertaining. As children's performer "Mr. Loop," Brady uses his ebullient personality, great music, and stunning performance style to involve children in the creation of rhythms and music, creating an unforgettable experience!

Students will be experiencing a new culture in a fun and exciting way, they will get a chance to see and at times touch the ancestral drums. The taiko drum has the power to touch everyone with its thunderous sounds and vibrations. Taikoza hopes to open the students’ eyes to the richness of the Japanese culture and spark an interest. We hope that this will spark an interest in other world cultures. Taiko has been associated with many aspects of Japanese culture since ancient times.

In the Shinto religion, it was used to call upon and entertain the gods, or kami, and in Japanese Buddhism, its sound was the manifestation of the voice of the Buddha.

Performing Arts- Storytelling
A program of Irish Stories and Songs taken from a variety of themes in Irish history, folklore, culture and tradition. Most of the stories and songs are humorous, though serious pieces in relation to the above themes can be performed. The program is crafted towards adults, but I have found that children of all ages have enjoyed the stories and songs. Some of the stories ("God and the Devil Dividing the People") are personal and others such as "The White Doe," "The Boy who Had No Story" and "Robert Emmet's 'Speech from the Dock'" are taken from Irish folklore and history. I also include the stories of Eamon Kelly in my performances. In the course of the performance, I discuss aspects of Irish history, cultiure and tradition and encourage the audience to speak of their own Irish roots.
