Quirky author and composer Michael Hearst, along with his band, presents songs about Unusual Creatures, Extraordinary People, and Curious Constructions geared to curious families, extraordinary children and their unusual friends. The show draws from Michael Hearst’s highly successful series of books, albums and PBS series. It is an unusually-geeky A/V presentation of some of the most bizarre animals that roam the planet, odd and daring characters, and buildings sometimes stranger than the Brooklyn Bridge – using such odd-ball instruments as theremin, claviola, and stylophone. Fun for the whole family.
