Songs For Unusual Creatures / Songs For Extraordinary People
Quirky author and composer Michael Hearst, along with his band, presents selections from two shows: Songs For Unusual Creatures and Songs For Extraordinary People. The shows draw from Hearst's highly successful series of books, albums and PBS series. Through music, video, and story-telling, Hearst takes the audience on a fun, interactive investigation through the kingdom of weird animals (in Unusual Creatures) and odd and daring humans (in Extraordinary People) - using peculiar instruments such as theremin, claviola, and stylophone. Hearst has performed and given lectures and workshops at universities, museums, and cultural centers around the world. He has toured with The Magnetic Fields, performed with The Kronos Quartet at Carnegie Hall, and has appeared on such shows as NPR's Fresh Air, A+E's Breakfast With The Arts, and NBC's The Today Show.
