More than JUST words, Dan Gibson's progams are for audiences ranging from Pre-K to Post-Retirement and include folk, historical tales, ghost stories (if requested), whoppers, lively sing-alongs.

 

For more than a dozen years Dan's programs have entertained, created laughter, stimulated thinking and sparked imaginations. Because he's too lazy to do all the work himself, audience participation is required.

 

Schools: Programs, residencies support learning objectives in social studies, language arts, music.

 

Libraries: Summer reading, special events, adult/teen outreach.

 

Family Friendly Fun: Music, stories for families.

 

Senior Adult Programs: Retirement centers, church groups, hospital groups, more.

 

Cub Scouts: "Mostly Music" helps satisfy Music Belt Loop requirements.

 

Gatherings of all kinds: Scouting events, reunions, festivals, camps, museums, conventions, etc.

 

U.S. Civil War: Stories, music played on a mid-19th Century replica banjo.

 

Texas History Tales 'n' Tunes: Great for Texas History Month (March).

 

A Likely Story: Shameless whoppers.
