Three Ducks and a Goose: An Irish Tale and Tune Book/CD set
Boston-based fiddle player and composer, Brendan Tonra R.I.P.(originally from Gowlan, County Mayo) had released a children’s book called Three Ducks and a Goose: An Irish Tale and Tune. With illustrations by Kendra D’Angora, Tonra’s story recounts a happy childhood memory of watching ducks and geese splash around the family farmyard in Ireland. The book includes an audio recording of Tonra’s fiddle composition by the same name, which is a set dance in jig time. Kieran Jordan’s dancing can be heard on the CD, along with a children’s chorus singing the lyrics to “Three Ducks and a Goose,” and the distinctive playing of Brendan Tonra on fiddle and Helen Kisiel on piano.
