Gather ’round and listen…

Miss Judy will entrance and delight you with haunting tales and songs that have been passed down through the generations. From sentimental Victorian tales to timeless narrative songs, you’ll share in the joys, sorrows, and concerns of the poets who wrote them so long ago as well as the people who have passed them on and reshaped them ever since. Songs and stories will be interwoven with real historical details, images, and letters from Miss Judy’s own ancestors to create a uniquely magical experience.

Psst… To keep the stories going, Miss Judy will offer opportunities to participate and learn some of the songs. Plan to retell the stories and sing the songs with friends and family!
