In the Groves: World Stories and Songs that Celebrate Trees

Immerse yourself in nature with this story and music event celebrating the deep spirit of trees. This exquisitely crafted collection of myths, folktales and songs from around the world ranges from the humorous to the heartfelt including Kansakura, a delicate tale of love featuring the cherry trees of Japan, The Dancing Spirit of the Birch from Czechoslovakia and Three Green Ladies, a poignant legend about the ancient tree spirits of Cornwall, England. Refreshing and lyrical each piece is surrounded by evocative music from the culture, Celtic harp and song.

“It was one of the most moving storytelling nights I’ve experienced. It reawakened in me, and perhaps all of us there, a sense of the spirit in things.” Storyteller, Jay O’Callahan

“I’ve heard this performance twice and can’t recommend it highly enough. It is magical, it is musical, it is beautiful, it is soulful, it is perfection.” Bambi Good, Brookline, MA
