Join acclaimed storyteller and musician John Porcino as he spins a mix of stories and songs in a program called “One Earth.” Great for all ages!
Here’s what parents are saying about John Porcino’s nationally beloved family performances. “You should be a role model for the pied piper” — “A combination of Robin Williams, Captain Kangaroo and Pete Seeger” — “The moon was still laughing with us all the way home.” His performances are celebrations of story and song sparked to life with warmth, humor, a playful touch of audience participation, instruments from around the world and a message of caring for our planet and each other.
Born and bred in the suburbs of New York, John currently resides in Amherst, Massachusetts where he is an auditioned artist on the New England Foundation for the Arts, Massachusetts Touring, Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) Creative Teaching Partners, and MCC Performers rosters. Along with some 250 performances and workshop each year, he directs Farm and Wilderness Family Camp and most importantly is the father of two beautiful if not challenging children. As well he is a former classroom teacher, park naturalist, and director of two youth camps, and staff at numerous summer camps and outdoor education centers.
