Bluebearry Bear traveled all across Texas! He went to Riverwalk in San Antonio, and SoCo in Austin!
Dan Gibson kept the children in rapt attention and he entertained the adults at the same time with constant audience participation, movement, and skillful musicianship. His heirloom banjo fascinated both children and adults. He tailored each performance to the particular ages of the children who attended.
Mr. Gibson fostered literacy when he encouraged the children to finish rhymes and provide new words to songs.
He sparked creativity in the children when he got the children to supply new words and ideas from their own daily experience to adapt the traditional songs he performed.
His performance was a skillful rendering of various daguerreotypes from American history framed with old-time banjo playing and his sweet voice.
Dan Gibson is a national treasure.
