Adventure through the thickets of American folklore with Red Yarn & the Critters every Wednesday morning of the school year at the beautiful Village Ballroom in NE Portland. Audiences will sing, dance, clap, stomp, and experience the joy of community at Red Yarn’s interactive shows.
Red Yarn is a dynamic family performer who weaves folksongs and puppetry into engaging shows for all ages. With his energetic performances and lush folk-rock recordings, this red-bearded bard shares positive values while reinvigorating multicultural American folklore for younger generations.
This weekly show is hosted by Woodlawn Swap’n’Play, a family cooperative space where families come together to swap clothing and toys and bring their children to play. Woodlawn Swap’n’Play also hosts a free playtime in the ballroom immediately following the show.
