Tell Us A Tale Tunes

6 November 2011

We were delighted to broadcast Smithsonian Folkways Recording artist Elizabeth Mitchell‘s concert LIVE during the first hour of Tell Us A Tale this week.  We will eventually put this concert up for streaming purposes, but what a show!  During the second hour, we shared some fractured fairytales.
