Hugh Lupton tells The Stange Visitor - a great jump story, with possibility of participation on the the refrain (too much water, too little meat) 6 minutes

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.
