Red Yarn (aka Andy Furgeson) is a Texas-born, Oregon-based family performer who weaves folksongs and puppetry into high-energy shows for all ages. With his engaging performances, lush folk-rock recordings, and playful music videos, this red-bearded bard is reinvigorating American folklore for younger generations. 
 With traditional and original songs blending folk, rockabilly, country & blues, Red Yarn’s dynamic sound is both rooted and modern. Whether performing solo, with his wife & singing partner Jessie, or with a full band, Red Yarn encourages audiences to sing, dance, stomp, clap, and celebrate the multicultural musical heritage of the USA. As Red & Miss Jessie lead audiences through the landscapes of American folklore, they introduce their critter friends – lovable, handmade puppets – along the way. 
 Red Yarn & his family band have performed at Austin City Limits Festival, South by Southwest, Pilgrimage Music Fest, Stagecoach Country Music Festival, Wolf Trap, Symphony Space, Pickathon, Northwest String Summit, and libraries and children’s museums across the country. Accolades for Red Yarn’s albums include NAPPA Gold, Parents’ Choice, and Fids & Kamily Music Awards, and frequent play on SiriusXM Kids Place Live.
