Banana Slug String Band

Tuesday, August 18, 2020

Learn about earth science while singing along, during a lively concert of joyous music, plus puppets, theater and surprises.

"Dirt Made My Lunch!" This action-packed concert will have you singing and moving as you learn how dirt is made and how it makes our food. We'll be singing with "Mr. Dirt," the puppet, doing the Roots, Stems, Leaves, Flowers, Fruits, and Seeds dance, and getting down with decomposition.
