Mother, daughter team up on kid songs, get ready to perform here


Award-winning children's musicians Patricia Harris and her daughter Terri Thurman Finck will present a pair of interactive shows next Tuesday, July 11, in Forest Grove, featuring their 'Galliump! Kid Tunes' recordings.

The free public shows will be at 10:15 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Community Auditorium, 1915 Main St. Friends of the Forest Grove Library is sponsoring the event.

Those attending will be invited to sing along, learn simple dance steps, play rhythm instruments and act out songs with animal puppets during the 45-minute shows.

Finck, of Oregon City, is the principal singer/performer. Harris, of Klamath Falls, writes many of the duo's songs.

The team's first three CDs were winners in the 2003 Parents Guide Media Awards, and four of the duo's songs have won 'Best Children's Song of the Year' in the annual Portland Songwriters Association contest.
