Library and Informance


We offer two basic programs with unlimited customization to fit your needs.
Where the songs come from & Kids music and storytelling time

Where the songs come from


 This is an entertaining and facinating look at where

the Celtic songs we play come from in the world...a

multi-media production with live music!


The tradition of 'piping in' any gathering is brought to your audience
with the Great Highland Bagpipe. Not your normal opening for a library event!
Once everyone is awake, on to song performances that include the history of
the songs and a multi-media slide show of the areas in the British Isles they were 'born in'.
In depth background on the varied instruments played round out the experience.



A family friendly story or two from the rich Gaelic traditions of Scotland
and Ireland with a peat fire crackling and burning brightly on the screen,
sets the mood to transport listeners to a stone cottage in the highlands.



A few more songs and tunes and then....(drum roll).....Kim gives everyone a
chance to learn a Ceilidh (Kaylee) dance from the auld country ...always big fun!
These are family friendly as well, focusing on intergenerational sharing and laughter.
It doesn't take much room, and even those who chose not to dance will be
heartily lifted in spirit clapping along and toe tapping!



These programs are sculpted to fit each library, so let us know what format
works best for your programming. From a night of sea chanteys to the history
of the kilt and wool waulking, we can offer the best in folklore... connecting
the dots of music, story, dance, geography, myths, and the rich and
mystical heritage of our ancestors!
