Odds Bodkin visits Grendel’s Den in Cambridge MA to perform Beowulf: The Only One, his feature-length musical telling of Beowulf. Characters, vocal effects and a full score on 12-string guitar animate this ancient tale of heroism and gratitude. Voices for Beowulf, Grendel, Grendel’s Mother, King Hrothgar and many others along with haunting motifs on guitar blend into a compelling and vivid imaginative experience. Bodkin’s telling is based closely on the original Beowulf manuscript, the earliest known piece of literature in English.
