I love this song! A rocking blues version of THE THREE LITTLE PIGS!  Very clear lyrics. Great fun!

JOHA MAKES A WISH - a traditional middle-eastern tale re-told and read by Eric Kimmel (accompanied by illustrations from the book).

Shingebiss & the North Wind

told by Fran Stallings.

A powerful native American tale
of a young woman who stands up to,
and defeats, the cruel North Wind.

Fran, who generously gave me a copy of her CD, (Travelling Tales  Vol 1) accompanies this with a magical, hypnotic strumming of the autoharp  (in the distinctive 3-beat rhythm of the native American) throughout, and there’s a four-line song that recurs too, etching its way into your memory.

And the hissed voice she gives the North Wind - goose bump time!

This is one
of the top three storytelling performances
that I have ever heard.
