Performing Arts- Storytelling
Have your summer readers “shovel into” an exciting adventure with a lively participatory program of multicultural folk tales and songs about digging, gardening and going underground! Stories include “How Br’er Rabbit Outsmarted the Frogs” (by getting them to dig a deep grave for a seemingly dead Br’er Raccoon), “Talk” (coming very unexpectedly from some yams in a West African garden), and “Todo O Nada – All Or Nothing” (a spooky story about a hidden treasure cave). Songs include “Ground Hog,” “I Wish I Was A Mole In The Ground,” and “The Garden Song.” Tim’s dramatic style of voice, movement, and facial expression brings stories to life, and his gift of encouraging participation makes for high-spirited and engaging programs. He’ll accompany songs with guitar, mountain dulcimer, and conga drum. A program bibliography will be available so that books containing the stories can be on display, and Tim will recommend them in the program to celebrate and encourage reading. Tim Van Egmond has been delighting and captivating audiences all over the country for over 25 years. He has been selected for the New England States Touring Program, and the New Hampshire State Library's "Kid, Books, and the Arts" Project.

Walker, Nancy Nancy Walker trio Literature- Creative Writing,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
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. Some bands get by on style, some get by on substance. Some, instead, catch the magic that flashes when the two poles meet. The Nancy Walker trio is the real thing.
