Author and composer Michael Hearst, along with his band, presents songs about Unusual Creatures, Extraordinary People, Curious Constructions, and Unconventional Vehicles geared to curious families, extraordinary children and their unusual friends. The show draws from Hearst's highly successful series of books, albums, and PBS series. It is an unusually-geeky A/V presentation (like a TED talk for kids!) of some of the most bizarre animals that roam the planet, odd and daring characters, vehicles you never knew existed, and buildings sometimes stranger than the Brooklyn Bridge - using such odd-ball instruments as theremin, claviola, and stylophone.
