The beautiful puppet was created by Kingston artist Andrea Graham, and Corcoran Peppley assisted with set construction. All animation, story and direction by Josh Lyon.
I got to sit down with Georgette after the show and discuss unexpected career trajectories, life on the road and the simple pleasure of playing music with old friends, who happen to be really good musicians as well…
