Event Details

In his latest outdoor adventure songster Little John Nee is joined by musician Fionn Robinson as they travel across County Galway determined to make friends with nature. But, it appears that sometimes nature doesn’t want to be friends. Through song and comedy, Little John and Fionn tackle some difficult questions that cannot be ignored: Why is sea water salty not sweet? What’s the story with nettles?

In ‘Salt of the Sea’ Little John and long-time collaborator Fionn present a travelling outdoor concert of songs and stories, featuring a variety of intriguing instruments played with comic gusto and questionable virtuosity. The stories and songs centre around themes that engage the existential curiosity of young audiences regarding our relationship with the living things that surround us, from nettles to jellyfish, from cherry blossom trees to bees knees and the rare human being that is Captain Salt, who lives in a tugboat but has never been to sea. Ultimately, this show is a celebration of life and community that provides a much needed boost to the immune system through laughter, wonder, and song. Recommended Age: 6+. Performance Duration: 35-40 min
