The Wonderful Tune is a captivating, moving, and otherworldly show which is suitable for all the family. This reimagining of an old fairytale weaves together traditional music, song, puppetry, and animation to bring children on an unforgettable journey.
Told through the eyes of Maggie Connor and her son Maurice ‘the king of all the pipers in Ireland’, The Wonderful Tune is a musical world of singing mermaids, dancing sea creatures, and an enchanted tune which is sure to have everyone singing along!
The Wonderful Tune performance as part of Tradoodle Festival comes hot on the heels of Ceol Connected’s epic 4-week run of shows around Ireland, supported by The Arts Council.
Alongside Emma Fisher (puppeteer), The Wonderful Tune performers include some of Ireland’s finest traditional musicians: Thomas Johnston (uilleann pipes/whistles/vocals), Áine McGeeney (fiddle/vocals), and Seán McElwain (guitar).
