Tunes ‘n ‘Tales by Tricia

Saturday, August 8, 2015 – 3:30 to 4:15
River Stage

“Tricia” was born into a family where music and storytelling was a way of life. With 30 years of teaching experience in early childhood classrooms, and Gladys the Guitar by her side, “Tunes n Tales by Tricia” was a natural next step for her.

She has a long history, in Michigan and other states, of presenting workshops on teaching storytelling, puppetry, and music skills, and has performed in countless libraries, preschools and other events. With her educational model being fully participatory, she intuitively does not perform FOR her audience as much as she performs WITH them, so that children and families are quickly engaged and comfortable.

In 2010 she released her first CD, Hard Rock Candy Mountain, which has won the Dove Award and the Creative Child Award of Excellence. Her second CD, Uke Are All my Friends, features many of Tricia’s closest friends and family, as well as her new friend “Luke the Uke.” Now you can enjoy meeting Tricia, Gladys and Uke!
