The NW Puppet Center in Seattle, a magical place for a crankie fest. During intermission you could visit the museum and crankie merchants. Thank you to Dmitri Carter, Director of the Puppet Center. Oct. 1, 2016.
This is Katherine Fahey, telling a ghost story. We used live video projection so that everyone could see. There is a split second delay. The funny thing about this picture is that the skeleton head does not show up above in the projected image. There was a ghost in the box! :-)
Oct. 1, 2016. Charmaine Slaven and Charlie Beck's crankie The Grey Goose was performed on a foot powered crankie box. Totally cool!
Oct. 1, 2016. Dejah and louis Leger, performing an old Quebecois song. Had the audience in stitches. dejahleger.com
