Tim Jennings and Leanne Ponder to Appear at Green Mountain College
POULTNEY--Tim Jennings and Leanne Ponder, among today's finest interpreters of the international folk tale, will appear at Green Mountain College Monday, March 26 at 7:30 p.m. in the Gorge (Withey Hall). The performance is free and open to the public.
This talented duo is coming back to GMC by popular demand. Join Tim and Leanne as they play traditional Irish music on harp and concertina, and perform classic traditional tales, including some they collected in Vermont, and the heart-warming Irish Legend of St. Ailbe's Wolf Mother.
They have performed widely across North America, including such venues as The National Storytelling Festival, King County Storytelling Festival, Old Songs, Hudson Clearwater Revival, and the Toronto Storytelling Festival. All their material is traditional and includes classic folktales from around the world, Irish and American folk music, and a few folk spoken word pieces they discovered "live," still in oral circulation in New England families. Their storytelling albums have received major awards from the American Library Association and the Parents' Choice Foundation.
The performance is high energy, exciting, and deeply engaging. The tales are timeless and ageless. You listen, time changes, and you become ageless too.
