BEOWULF: THE ONLY ONE Friday January 18th in Nashua, NH

Odds Bodkin returns to the Riverwalk Music Bar in Nashua, NH at 8 pm on Jan. 18, 2019 to perform BEOWULF: THE ONLY ONE, an evening of adult storytelling with live music.

Bodkin’s storyteller’s version of this earliest known work in English cleaves closely to the original poem about the Geatish hero, Beowulf. How when a beast, Grendel, begins to terrorize the land of the Danes, Beowulf and his thanes journey there on a mission of gratitude. Beowulf’s mission: to kill the towering, wolf-like beast and free the Danes from their nightmare.

But things go from bad to worse.

The telling includes a literary and historical introduction accompanied with Celtic harp and the feature-length tale itself, scored with 12-string guitar and performed with character voices and vocal effects.
