Tales & Tunes and The Dam

Tales & Tunes and The Dam

If you're lucky enough to see one of the few "Tales & Tunes" shows this autumn you'll hear the goosebump-inducing story of Kathryn and her dad exploring an abandoned village, prior to the building of the Kielder Dam. Kathryn was encouraged to play tunes in the old cottages – the last time music would be heard within those walls. This tale was the inspiration for "The Dam", a newly-published picture book by David Almond, with beautiful illustrations by Levi Pinfold.
