Sound Effects Wizard Fred Newman

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a dripping faucet!
Fred Newman is best known to the KPBX audience as Garrison Keillor’s go-to man for every sound effect humanly possible. But he also travels the country with his own One-Mouth Show.

Fred shared his uncanny ability to recreate sounds at the Bing Crosby Theater Wednesday, June 18 at 7:30 p.m. He also told stories of his past -- how a fly impersonation kept him in a college class, and growing up in Georgia hearing stories from the best.

The evening entertainment was SPR's annual Volunteer and Underwriter Thank-You event. Thanks to Event Donors The Cleaning Authority, Strong Solutions, and Vino! A Wine Shop.
