Barry Stewart Mann Presents: Old Joe & the Carpenter and Other Folktales to Build On

Let’s explore the world through folklore, building bridges, walls, and character along the way. We’ll delight to the Senegalese story “Caddo’s Wall,” about generosity; “The Listening Cap,” from Japan, about stewardship; the Appalachian tale of “Old Joe and the Carpenter,” about peace; and "Deer and Jaguar Build a House," a cuento from the Amazon told bilingually. There’ll be sights to see, songs to sing, parts to play, lessons to learn, and meanings to construct from the wisdom of these timeless tales from the world’s diverse cultures.

This program is suggested for ages 4-12 and registration is not required.
