Paul Taylor performs at Laramie Plains Civic Center in Laramie on Friday, August 12, 7:30 p.m.
By sharing the stories and music of Aboriginal and European Australia, acclaimed performing artist and educator Paul “Walking Stick” Taylor helps bridge cultures. His latest CD, "Cooee!," recently won six national awards, including: the NAPPA and Parent’s Choice Gold Award 2003 for Storytelling, NAPPA Honors Award 2003 for Music, and a 2004 Storytelling World Award. Cooee!, a follow-up to Taylor’s albums Walkabout, Matilda & the Dreamtime and Doo Bee Doo, showcases a collaboration between Taylor and Don Spencer, the Australian children’s TV personality who The New York Times calls “the Crocodile Dundee of Kids' Music”. Taylor and Spencer interweave now-traditional Aussie favorites such as “Waltzing Matilda” with tales reaching back to the earliest history of the country’s first people
