High Five: Red Yarn’s Old Barn

Each week Kinderling gives a HIGH FIVE to music, artists, albums and other stuff we think is awesome!

It takes a village to raise a barn! Or so the saying goes in Red Yarn’s Old Barn, our High Five this week.

Red Yarn is also known as Andy Furgeson, an Austin-born, Portland-based family folksinger and puppeteer.

A mix of original songs and traditional covers, the releasetells the captivating story of a barn dance where ALL creatures are welcome.

With an apathetic rooster, an activist hen, a proud horse, a neglected cow, a free-spirited sheep, and a rigid sheriff, the cast of characters represents many sides of American democracy. Starting with a slow dance, we jump to a party in the meadow and finishing with an upbeat barn dance jig. As the story unfolds, a wild barn dance sparks a disastrous fire. But the community reunites to rebuild.

Capturing the farm sounds of Texas, Southern-born, Portland-based Red Yarn’s Old Barn drops a hootenanny for everybody, so it’s our High Five this week.
