Elevating the world of children's music, Elizabeth Mitchell brings a folk musician's love of homespun storytelling to her unique brand of gentle, heartfelt music. Mitchell is joined by a roster of special guests, including Natalie Merchant ("Wonder," "Kind and Generous"), for a concert blending holiday songs off her new album, The Sounding Joy, with longtime audience favorites, a songbook that includes renditions of classic songs by Woody Guthrie, Bob Marley, The Velvet Underground and Gillian Welch.

Reviews & Ratings
Nimbaya! is a troupe of women from West Africa playing the djembe, an instrument historically reserved for male players. These female artists have made a name for themselves in choosing to become percussion players, demonstrating their desire to control their destiny and lead themselves out of a life of poverty through art. A major draw at several international childrens' festivals including The Seattle International Children Festival, and Canada's Edmonton International Children Festival, the company's amazing drumming and high energy dance is both fun and inspirational for children, young and old.
A co-production with World Music Institute.
