New Show - touring in 2013-2014 -
"Searching for True Gold"
What became of King Midas after the whole Gold fiasco? What is the oldest reed instrument in Europe, and why did Marsyas the Satyr wish he had a bagpipe instead? Can you ever trust a man who lives in a waterfall? Do Hungarian bagpipes really make rain? And, after being kidnapped by Fairies, exactly what kind of pot of gold should one ask for?
An evening of stories true and slightly true,wandering through the realms of folklore and folk music in search of that which gives our life meaning - joy, laughter, treasure of many kinds, and ultimately the company we keep - with tunes and songs from several corners of Ireland, Norway, Hungary, Euskadi, Appalachia, Greece and Scotland.
Kevin Carr has been telling stories and making music for decades, and a sweet, rousing, enchanting experience is guaranteed. You will hear several kinds of fiddles, banjo, and a number of rare small bagpipes.
