A Concert for the Mother – tickets
Through a double spiral of original music and lyrics spun around ancient myth, fairy and folk tales, two women artists sound out the raw, open, grateful, fragile and ever-powerful experience of mothering in the embrace of an endangered yet resilient Mother Earth.
This event is probably most appropriate for grown-ups; however, mature children ages 10 and up are welcome to attend with their parents.
