The Far Field as part of MUSICTOWN in IMMA April 17th

The Far Field – a magical music performance at IMMA on April 17th at 12 noon, 2pm & 3.30pm.       Tickets €5 (1 adult & 2 children) directly from eventbrite .FarField_Musictownposter

The otherworldly realm of fairies is brought to life in this music performance for young children (aged 5+), developed and performed by Thomas Johnston (whistles/song) with Seán McElwain (guitar/fiddle/whistle), and Emma Fisher (puppeteer).

One Spring day, Lonán the farmer discovers a magical whistle hidden in a hare’s nest. Suspecting that it belongs to the fairy folk who live at the edge of his farm, Lonán decides that the whistle should be returned to its rightful owners.  What follows on his journey to the far field are strange and wonderful encounters with Cara the cow, a mischievous hare, shiny singing stones, and a hooley under the hawthorn tree.
