In case I haven’t mentioned them already, The Shanties are a New Celtic Music band from Bloomington, IL. They make awesome music! I bought their CD the first time I saw them perform a couple years ago and loved it so much, I asked them if I could make Puppet Pantomime Videos of their songs. They said “Sure!” Now they are fans of my work as well as vis versa. Last night, I saw them perform live for the 3rd time; it was also the 2nd time they invited me to join them on stage with a puppet. I had Fonzo the Fiddler with me that night, so fun was had by all when he danced and played the fiddle along side The Shanties for one of their songs, “Girl from Kerry Hill.”

About a year ago, I made a pantomime with the Puppets of the same song.
