Sharon Kennedy - More Irish Folk Tales for Children (2001) Retail CD
Half a decade after she released the beguiling Irish Folk Tales for Children, Sharon Kennedy returns with another winning album of Irish tales for kids, even though adults will find these folk tales just as entrancing and entertaining. In one example of the rich and magical world Kennedy serves up in four stories (totaling more than an hour of storytelling with one brief Irish musical interlude), pigs can't stop dancing ("Annie O'Reilly and the Magic Dancing Pig"). Of course, underlying this 16-minute fable is a sly critique, as the king of England wants this prized pig as his own and is wontmore… to take things, but the pig eludes royal grasp. Kennedy proves again she's an accomplished seanachie (that's Gaelic for storyteller). Her voice is rich, warm, and musical as she spins imaginative foibles such as Tommy O'Rourke's visit to the moon, or as she delightfully relates an abridged version of the old Beowulf yarn in "Finn McCool." In the age of Harry Potter's magical adventures--and way too much TV watching--here's a grand listening exercise for children that will capture their heads and hearts while hopefully helping to keep their ears on. --Martin Keller
