Presented in 19th century 'folk opera' performance style, it sparkles with canal-era music from cultures along the canal, performed on a rare collection of historic instruments including hammer dulcimer, banjo, fiddle, hurdy gurdy, early squeezeboxes, canal horn, and more. Our story unfolds as Captain Simon Slick and Irish cook Sallie Waters meet up with Sal, a truly amazing mule who makes quite a splash (and also happens to be guest from the audience!). Together they set off on a rollicking journey down The Grand E-ri-e Canal, 8th Wonder of the World! Great characters, great stories, and an unforgettable historic enrichment experience for Summer Reading Programs! NOTE: For a gala event, our “15 Miles” performance may be expanded with your choice of NYS Canal Cultural Heritage workshop activities: expanded singing roles for a children’s/family chorus; lively canal-era children's dances; and even student-written Tall Tale vignettes for the Grand Finale.

Within the frame story of Jack sailing on his cabbage (based on an old story dreamed up by Pete Seeger long ago), Story Laurie takes listeners on an imaginary journey that begins in your library’s backyard. The audience will sail south to the small island nation of Haiti, to hear a traditional folk tale. Then they will set sail across the Atlantic, where they will meet characters commonly found in European and African folklore. We then continue our journey around the globe, with a stop in Asia, then the South Seas and finally back home to the United States...singing songs, telling tales, off we go!
