Bill Gordh Presents Folktales from Around the World

January 31, 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

Folktales from Around the World

Bill Gordh returns to Sugar Hill with banjo in hand to offer another program of interactive folktales from around the world.

  • Feegbah, the Pumpkin. In this West African folktale, a little boy finds a pointy stick and starts poking everything. The big pumpkin doesn’t like it and starts chasing him!

  • Tomorrow Monkeys (Brazil). A folktale about monkeys who just keep playing, though each night they decide that the next day they will build a house. This is retold with gestures that the children can join in and thus help tell the tale. 

  • Tree with a Door in It (Original) : A Story/Game Song that gets the children moving.

  • Raven Brings back the Sun (Innuit). An arctic tale of the trickster Raven on a quest to bring back the sun, moon and stars that were stolen by an evil wizard.

  • The Octopus (A Japanese Drawing Story). A drawing of a series of short songs become an Octopus.

  • Half a Blanket (Mexico) Parents learn from the compassion of their daughter about taking care of her grandfather.
