‘This is the most exciting project I have worked on for years. Jo Pollock is an amazing young singer and musician who has set these stories to music and song. Moving, powerful and beautiful – with an Irish lilt. Wonderful to feel that we are reclaiming the territory and that we are bringing music, song and story together for thousands of children and teachers to hear – and then to pass on.’

Pie Corbett - Educational trainer, writer, author and poet
