About The Artist: Andrew Queen is more fun than bare feet in a mud puddle full o’ frogs! He digs up old tunes and stories and brings them to life in the folk tradition. Andrew throws in some twisted endings, animated voices and swinging refrains and before you know it the whole room is up and at ‘em stretching their bodies and minds to side-splitting action songs. People small and TALL can’t help but sing along with Andrew’s groovy lyrics to freaky Fairy Tale tunes. The laughter is infectious as Andrew takes us yodelling through avalanches in the Austrian Alps, tromping through the muck of the Okeefenokee Swamp and high-tailing it from a great big bear in north Ontario. The kids will be singing Andrew’s songs long after the show is over, sticking around like roasted marshmallows on little paws after a summer campfire. Andrew has sung and played his guitar, jug, kazoo & washtub bass to Festival audiences from coast to coast. As a Family Folkster Andrew has played the side stages, main stages & family stages at the Winnipeg, Hillside, Red Rock, Red Skies and Mill Race Folk Festivals. With Jughead he also performed at Festival by the Sea, Northern Lights Borealis, Milk International Children’s Fest and Vancouver Folk Festival. He has led and participated in workshops on Songs that Tickle the Funny Bone, Blowin’ in the Wind (jug, kazoo) and All Things Stringed (washtub bass). Andrew records and performs with his swingin’ & hootin’ band, the Crocodaddies. On the fiddle, banjo and back-woods vocals is Luke Mercier, a mastercraftsman violin maker whose credits include Rolling River and Lazy John. Huffin’ & puffin’ on the harmonicas is Danny Ouellette a long time veteran of Canada’s original motorgrass band, Jughead. And the backbone of the band, Tim Hadley brings a joy to the doghouse bass that you must have experienced if you’ve heard him perform with the Grievous Angels, the Cajun Ramblers or Stompin’ Tom Connors.
