Songs of the Australian Outback and British Isles echoed through River Park Square on Saturday, October 4 as the Urban Coyote Bush Band performed for another KPBX Kids' Concert.

Kids of all ages made musical noise with clappers, washboards, small cymbals, and the 'lagerphone' made out of bottlecaps.

Kids also had help creating kangaroo headgear, a craft by the Mobius Children's Museum.

Fred Newman is best known to the KPBX audience as Garrison Keillor’s go-to man for every sound effect humanly possible. But he also travels the country with his own One-Mouth Show.

Fred shared his uncanny ability to recreate sounds at the Bing Crosby Theater Wednesday, June 18 at 7:30 p.m. He also told stories of his past -- how a fly impersonation kept him in a college class, and growing up in Georgia hearing stories from the best.
