For Music Lovers aged 2 – 102

Did little Miss Muffett jive around her tuffet? Were Jack and Jill bopping up that hill? Was it a funky beat that made the cradle really rock? Rockin' Rhymes is a new music show for music lovers aged 2 to 102. It is a rock-n-roll adventure featuring nursery rhymes as you’ve never heard them before.

Branar is delighted to present our first music show for children and families. Original songs based on the well-loved nursery rhymes will be performed by a live 5-piece band, accompanied by animated illustrations by artist Maeve Clancy and directed by Marc Mac Lochlainn.

The band comprises of Helen Gregg on vocals, Grace Kiely on vocals & double bass, Michael Chang on viola & mandolin, Rickie O'Neill on drums and Miquel Barceló, musical director, on guitar.

Produced in association with Pavilion Theatre & Roscommon Arts Centre.

Duration: Approx. 45 mins.

Designed for anyone aged 2 – 102.
