Rockin' Rhymes

Did little Miss Muffet jive around her tuffet? Did Jack and Jill bop up that hill? Was it a funky beat that made the cradle really rock?

‘Rockin' Rhymes’ is a musical adventure featuring nursery rhymes as you’ve never heard them before.

Much-loved Galway company, Branar Téater do Pháistí, present their first music show for families. Original songs based on well-loved nursery rhymes will be performed by a five-piece band of stellar musicians and singers, accompanied by animated illustrations by Maeve Clancy.

The band comprises Helen Gregg (vocals), Grace Kiely (vocals & double bass), Michael Chang (viola & mandolin), Rickie O'Neill (drums) and Miquel Barcelo (guitar). Direction by Marc Mac Lochlainn. This show is produced in association with Pavilion Theatre and Roscommon Arts Centre.
