Red Yarn began as a blanket title for Andy Furgeson's explorations in folk music, puppetry, and storytelling. Andy is an educator, artist, and amateur folklorist in Portland, OR. Red Yarn became Andy’s creative persona--an intinerant bard and animal whisperer with a red beard as thick as the yarns he spins. Red Yarn now takes on many forms: teaching artist; 5-Piece or One-Man Puppet Band; folk production company; scribblings of a young man with a serious animal folk song obsession. Whichever yarn you choose to follow, enjoy!
