STORYTELLING

SPOKEN WORD, with occasional music

reviews

vampire princess

newThe Vampire Princess

by Tim Jennings and Leanne Ponder

Witty, timely, timeless hair-raisers. The title story is a gypsy folktale collected in Bohemia 200 years ago. In a setting of forest, castle, and crypt, you'll meet a gypsy soldier near the end of his service, a treacherous king, his bloodthirsty daughter, an old begger woman who knows a thing or two, the palace guard, and a mysterious and hungry all-knowing beast who lives in the heart of the woods. Recorded live during a violent thunderstorm, in The Four Corners Schoolhouse, East Montpelier VT. Released Friday the 13th of September 2013.

Five stories, five tunes, sixty minutes.

$12

"Damned entertaining. Jennings and Ponder are true Vermont treasures, and hearing their stories never grows old." Seven Days

weatherbeard DC album cover

Weatherbeard

by tim jennings
CD at last! Recorded analog, intensively edited with razor and tape, originally released on audiocassette, after 25 years Tim's solo recording finally enters the digital age for new generations to discover.

Farmer Weatherbeard is a 27 minute epic of longnosed crones, talking birds, bickering couples, flying horses and magicians' duels. Rapunzel is 23 minutes, compelling, intimate, intense, and just in time to counteract what appears to be an unusually trivial Disney animation.

These satisfyingly substantial tales are complemented by infectious dance music from the Sweet Corn Broadcasters, and a couple of goofy folk nonsense "bits" for 60 minutes total runtime.

CELTIC MUSIC

HARP and CONCERTINA traditional intrumentals, with occasional fiddle, guitar, and flute  

The Water Kelpie

traditional celtic music on harp and concertina
with walter weber on fiddle and tom hodgson on guitar
CD or cassette.About forty-five minutes of calming, energizing melody. Quite a few babies have been pointed out to us as having been born while this tape was on-- they look like excellent babies-- but more people use it, like the editor of Concertina and Squeezebox, during "late-night slug-outs with the computor."

Sheefra

traditional celtic music cassette
with berta frank on flute, and a bit of franklin heyburn's fiddle.
Some of our most complex arrangements. "When you pass by somebody's house, and hear beautiful music, and can see no source at all, that's a sign that the Sheefra is playing, and somebody inside will have some unexpected good fortune."

The masters are gone, if you want this music, you'll have to get the cassette.
