The Banana Slug String Band
is a group of lovable musicians and educators from the coastal redwoods of Northern California. Since 1987 the Slugs have dedicated themselves to making great music for kids that teaches science and a love of this green earth.
Celebrate summer in the land of rejuvenation with the world-renowned Banana Slug String Band. We will use music, theater, puppetry, poetry, arts, and games to deepen our connection to this magical earth. The program will culminate in a performance by the budding children stars and the Banana Slug String Band.
This workshop can be taken on its own or as an extension of the July 23-28 Music and Nature Family Workshop. “During our time together, we will continue to deepen our connection to the natural world through music, art, games, and theater,” says leader Doug Dirt. “We will put special emphasis on water, because water means everything to us in our lives and at Esalen! Water is Life…whether it is the otters, dolphins, and whales that make Big Sur their home, the powerful clear creek running through Esalen, or the hot springs with its healing waters.
