Being spit at by a chimpanzee, screamed at by a prairie dog and charged by a pig is all in a day's work for veteran photographer Vincent J. Musi. As part of the National Geographic Live! series, he'll share images and stories from his April 2014 National Geographic article, "Exotic Pets." Musi explored the deep connections owners have with creatures you can't buy at a pet store, from a deer that has her own bedroom to a cuddly potbellied pig. He'll also talk about his work on other National Geographic stories, including "Animal Minds" from March 2008. Learn More

What a treat! The intimate setting of the Grosvenor Auditorium at the National Geographic created a warm, inviting atmosphere. The musicianship Téada, the band, was superb including guitar, uilean pipes, bodhran, fiddle, and guest harp virtuso Gráinne Hambly. Caran Casey's vocals were rich and pure. Brian Cunningham's sean nos dance (less formal than the step dancing of Riverdance) was a joy to behold. The whole evening was strung together by the stories, anecdotes, and remembrances of Christmas in Ireland. The one flaw was that the stage is so low that it was difficult for much of audience to see Cunningham's amazing footwork. If the chance arises to see any or all of these performers, jump at it.

Music and dance were lovely and entertaining. The storytelling and chatting by the musicians was hit and miss and sometimes quite long-winded. They spent about half the time talking. Would have preferred 20% more music and less talk.
