As part of Music Town Common Ground presents ‘The Quiet Tree’

Let your children be mesmerised by a traditional Irish musical fairy tale. The Quiet Tree is an intimate traditional Irish musical performance specifically designed for young children and their families. The creatures of Whistleberry Forest have discovered an old oak tree growing deep in the woods.

However, there are no birds singing, no leaves rustling, and no animals scurrying around its trunk. Led by musicians Thomas Johnston and Stephen Markham this delightful musical takes families on a journey through the forest where they become a band of musicians that explore instruments, sing and dance and help Oran the owl, Sorley the snail and Faolán the frog bring the old oak tree to life. Common Ground, FamiliBase, Kylemore College and Ceol Connected are delighted to bring this unique family music event to Ballyfermot as part of MusicTown.

Ticket Price: €5 family ticket (limited to 1 adult & 2 children aged 2 – 6 years – parents/carer must attend and are encouraged to participate alongside the children. It will be fun!)
