Family Concert with Brotha James

We are so excited to have brotha James perform at Fairies & Forts this year. His energetic and engaging performance gets kids and parents alike participating in the process–clapping, dancing, singing, and maybe even beat-boxing along.

Through music, he invites kids to join him as a dreamer, to follow their passion for what makes them happy, to show gratitude for simple things, and hold on to the moments that are filled with joy.

All ages will enjoy this show.

Following ten years as an environmental educator and classroom teacher, Jenifer Strauss united her passion for teaching and storytelling to create Story Be Told, which for over twenty years has been using story to help educators, organizations, and individuals connect, communicate, and achieve their goals.
