Born to Metropolitan Opera singers, Billy Gilbert was in Vaudeville since age 12, and upon being spotted by Stan Laurel during a stage show in 1929, was introduced to the world of motion pictures.

Hawkins, Jim Irish Stories and Songs Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
A program of Irish Stories and Songs taken from a variety of themes in Irish history, folklore, culture and tradition. Most of the stories and songs are humorous, though serious pieces in relation to the above themes can be performed. The program is crafted towards adults, but I have found that children of all ages have enjoyed the stories and songs. Some of the stories ("God and the Devil Dividing the People") are personal and others such as "The White Doe," "The Boy who Had No Story" and "Robert Emmet's 'Speech from the Dock'" are taken from Irish folklore and history. I also include the stories of Eamon Kelly in my performances. In the course of the performance, I discuss aspects of Irish history, cultiure and tradition and encourage the audience to speak of their own Irish roots.
