This program is truly one of a kind and all instruments are authentic and brought back by myself from the country of origin. The music is real and not dumbed down in any way, and I have found that this program always thrills, entertains, and educates audiences. Its perfect for ages 3-11.

Story themes are universal and continue to be relevant now as they were well then. For example, the question, “What do women want?” was asked and successfully answered over 700 years ago. The knightly stories of heroic, and sometimes not so heroic, behavior continue to entertain and inspire, and modern adult audiences will appreciate them as much as did listeners during times long past. The tellers also provide an intriguing commentary on the historical context of the tales. Program length is 45-50 minutes with additional time for comments and questions.
