Red Yarn, Joanie Leeds

Mission Theater (map) Northwest
Sat., Oct. 14, 10:30 a.m. 2017 All Ages


In the vein of fellow Portlanders Laura Veirs and Cat Doorman, Red Yarn makes music that both you and your kids will not just tolerate, but actively love. This isn't a lesser-evil concession to adult ears, either (let's stop pretending, moms and dads—Raffi sucks). Red Yarn is the alter ego of gifted songwriter Andy Furgeson, who's also played in the terrific Portland folk-rock bands Scrimshander and Bark Hide and Horn. In my day, I remember listening to scratched-up copies of In Harmony and Smurfing Sing Song. With Red Yarn, you can do better for your kids. NED LANNAMANN
