Red Yarn (aka Andy Furgeson) is a Texas-born, Oregon-based family performer who weaves folksongs and puppetry into high-energy shows for all ages.

Ants Ants Ants
Ants Ants Ants is an Oregon-based family music band with original songs that evoke vivid imagery of childhood at its best. Songwriters Johnny Clay and Dave Gulick give stylistic nods to 1970’s era Sesame Street, School House Rock and "The Point" by Harry Nilsson targeting not only the kids in our lives, but the kid in all of us.

Between them, these master music makers have released many albums over the years (Johnny with “The Dimes”, www.thedimes.com, and Dave with “Derby” www.derbyrock.com), each enjoying a run of regional and national buzz, radio play, and great critical reviews (Spin Magazine, NPR Song of the Day, charting on college radio, etc).

After relentless touring, record making, and the pursuit of the traditional indie band path for more than 10 years, these Ants eventually got off the road and began tunneling their way deeper into the recording studio. With this newfound creative freedom came opportunities to write songs in different styles and genres, which brought them into the world of writing for film and television. Since 2010 Johnny and Dave have written music featured in television, films, and national brand campaigns including Toyota, Ford, AT&T, Nike, Coca-Cola, and many others.

In 2017 Johnny received an Emmy nomination for Best Musical Composition/Arrangement for his original score in the documentary film, "Voyagers Without Trace.” A quick peek at some of their licensed work is available at www.hurstersongs.com (for Johnny) and www.davegulickmusic.com (for Dave).

Like the real-world critters that inspired the band’s name, these Ants love working together and bringing friends along for the picnic. The extended Ants team includes other local musicians with amazing resumes of their own as well as mixing engineer and long time friend Will Hensley who won a GRAMMY for his work mixing the 2016 Award-winning Best Children’s album, Home by Tim Kubart.
