dickieBirdChildren’s entertainer, Dickie Bird, has an ample supply of up-beat music, a suitcase full of magic tricks, and amazing gizmos like his bubble machine. His performances are fast-paced fun with singalongs, action songs, magic tricks, the Everybody Joins In Jug Band, and many opportunities for audience participation. His puppet pal, Doug the Wug, also makes an appearance. Dickie Bird’s show has been described by critics as “Personable, enthusiastic, talented, appealing” and “The perfect combination of music, magic and fun!” Dickie Bird is also known as Richard Knechtel. You can see him perform in that incarnation at the festival as half of the duo, Knechtel & McLean.
