Short-Term Programs and Classroom Visits (All Ages)

James McCarthy has traveled the country “in the tradition of the Modern Troubadours,” learning stories and songs along the way. His performances blend vivid characters, audience participation, and musical selections in a way that is uniquely his own. His tales include encounters with wild animals, legends about mountain life and songs reaching back to his Irish roots. They are suitable for all ages.
