Billy Jonas brings action-packed performance for All Ages to TFAC

Published 4:35pm Friday, May 10, 2013

The performance features award-winning singer/songwriter Billy Jonas accompanied by singer Ashley Jo Farmer.  These two performers will have everyone in the house singing, stomping, and joining in the fun.

According to Sing Out! Magazine, “Billy engages the audience with a wild assortment of rhythm and word play that usually leaves them both entertained, and a little more in touch with their spiritual selves. He teaches, through experience, that music is everywhere.”

Billy’s music is geared for children, but it’s not just fun and games and has plenty of material to keep more mature audience members engaged. His tunes are educational, inspirational, enlightening, as well as just plain fun. The music takes on a spontaneity and life of its own with Billy’s “found sound” recycled instruments, crafted out of cast-off goods such as water bottles, oil drums and other found options.
