A collection of newly composed traditional tunes and songs from ‘The Quiet Tree’, a traditional music, storytelling, and puppetry performance created especially for very young children.
Children AND their adults can explore the sounds of Whistleberry Forest, sing along with Ornaith the owl, and dance on the lily pads with Faoláin the funky frog!
Devised and produced by traditional musician, researcher, and educator Dr. Thomas Johnston (whistles and song), The Quiet Tree also features the magically musical talents of Stephen Markham (keyboard & sound design), and Seán Óg Graham (guitar).
