I would like to recommend Parasol Puppets, a performing troupe from Missouri that will be touring the Northwest with their new show with live music for a few days this spring.  I have seen them perform several other shows, and they are always lively crowd-pleasers.  We have booked them for a day when school is out in Albany, and I encourage other libraries to take advantage of this rare opportunity to enjoy their unique programs.  Here is the information they sent:

Colorful handpuppets, live sing-a-long participation, and live hammered dulcimer music, what a winning combination! We are available to perform at your library on April 25, 26, 30, or May 1, 2012.

Audiences enjoy singing along with ukulele and hammered dulcimer music as these two familiar characters collide into an original adventure. Songs include
