Hawkins, Jim Irish Stories and Songs Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
A program of Irish Stories and Songs taken from a variety of themes in Irish history, folklore, culture and tradition. Most of the stories and songs are humorous, though serious pieces in relation to the above themes can be performed. The program is crafted towards adults, but I have found that children of all ages have enjoyed the stories and songs. Some of the stories ("God and the Devil Dividing the People") are personal and others such as "The White Doe," "The Boy who Had No Story" and "Robert Emmet's 'Speech from the Dock'" are taken from Irish folklore and history. I also include the stories of Eamon Kelly in my performances. In the course of the performance, I discuss aspects of Irish history, cultiure and tradition and encourage the audience to speak of their own Irish roots.

Handy, Spook Spook Handy In Concert History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Spook Handy in Concert is the most popular show I do. Instead of being theme oriented, this is just simply me, my trio or full band showcasing mostly original songs from my 4 CDs. Sprinkled with occasional 60s and 70s folk songs or an obscure original, this concert engages audiences of all backgrounds and ages. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places. Pete Seeger covers some of Spook's songs and the two perform together several times per year.

TheatreworksUSA, - THE LIGHTNING THIEF Music,
Performing Arts- Theater
Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. And that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he’s angered a few of them. Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen and Percy is the prime suspect. Now Percy has ten days to find and return Zeus’s stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves. Adapted from the book The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan.
$1001- $3000
