Breathing new life to old stories with a musical score

Storytelling with a brand new spin.
We take our favorite myths, and we don’t shy away from the sex and violence that were always present in the Irish storytelling tradition.
We breathe fresh air into ancient myths, with a live original musical score composed by a team of talented musicians with a flare for plucking the heartstrings and setting the tone to fit the tale.
We keep the depth, the wisdom, and the richness, and leaven it with humour, passion and playfulness to enchant audiences of any age.
Live music is the heartbeat of all our performances, driving the rhythm of the storytelling, weaving through the tale and sweeping the listener away.
