Following her solo show, “The Wolf Bride,” at 2017’s Denmark Festival of Voice, Christina Cairns brings audiences a new performance of storytelling, a winter’s feast of fables and songs both old and new, with more than a hint of the strangeness of the world.
The eerie, the supernatural and the just plain odd are favourite themes of folk tales and old ballads. Through the long winter nights, when there was little to do but sit by the fire and tell tales to wile away the dark and dangerous hours, our ancestors created songs and stories to chill the soul, break the heart and send shivers down the spine. Tales of woe, of lost love, of strange encounters.
