More rocky mountain fairy tales
“It’s a little known secret some fairies change color when the seasons turn and that is how I first met the purple fairies.”
This CD 'more rocky mountain fairy tales', is the highly anticipated follow up to the very successful original rocky mountain fairy tales. The disc continues the much-loved stories of outdoor adventure while introducing kids to the purple fairies and the funky rhythms of jazz.
Project creator Samantha Whelan Kotkas developed and produced this project in collaboration with fellow Calgarian, Tyler Hornby – a jazz drummer and composer – who brought the stories musically to life. The resulting 68-minute recording features four original narrated stories, four original catchy jazz tunes and showcases some of Canada’s finest jazz musicians.
