Skeedaddle

Great harmonies and audience participation make Skeedaddle a true joy to see. Drawing on songs from the family entertainment playbook (Raffi, Peter Paul and Mary, as well as original songs) their fast-paced shows are fun for the whole family. The musicianship of band members Laura Green (guitar, vocals), Richard Inman (banjo, fiddle, vocals) and Hoxie Green (guitar, flute, percussion, vocals) ensure that anyone who has the pleasure of going to a Skeedaddle show will be enchanted and entertained.

Something Ridiculous

Something Ridiculous has performed on The Gong Show, at halftime for the LA Lakers, on cruise ships around the globe, and at fairs large and small. They've been featured on ESPN's SportsCenter and in a nationwide commercial... Over the last eight years, they have watched as a colony of young “acorns” have transformed from enthusiastic fans into avid unicyclists and jugglers themselves, joining them in local parades and weekend rides and inspiring others as they make these circus arts their own.

Don't miss the return of Something Ridiculous at this year's festival.
