*Best Audible Children’s Book of 2018
Gustafer Yellowgold’s Show is a funny and touching multimedia performance of music, colored pencil animations and storytelling. The music and ‘moving art’ shows are performed by two-time Grammy® nominated songwriter, cartoonist and author, Morgan Taylor, solo, full band or along with a full symphony orchestra. With its unique crossover appeal, the show has even been the wild-card opening act for Wilco and The Polyphonic Spree. All of the songs are whimsical and super catchy narratives that explain the life of a friendly alien from the Sun who now resides in a wildly imaginative version of the woods of Minnesota.
GUSTAFER YELLOWGOLD'S I'M FROM THE SUN TOUR
The new 2019/2020 live shows include abridged versions of the I’m From The Sun and The Minnesota Chronicles audiobooks along with evergreen fan-favorites. Gustafer Yellowgold's Audible Original I’m From the Sun: The Gustafer Yellowgold Story released October 1, 2018 and the sequel in the trilogy, The Minnesota Chronicles releases on September 19. 2019. Ride along with 9-year old “sunling” Gustafer, in this wildly imaginative, melancholy musical comedy!
