Tim Van Egmond blends together folktales, tunes, and songs to share their wellspring of wisdom, humor, and warmth. Music flows in and around his stories though his singing and playing on a wide variety of traditional instruments. including hammered dulcimer, mountain dulcimer, guitar, conga drum, and limberjack (a dancing wooden rhythm puppet). His dynamic style of voice and movement brings stories to life, his gifted playing and singing moves and inspires, and his knack for encouraging participation makes for high-spirited and engaging programs for all ages.
