Celebrate Grendel's Den's 50th anniversary with a virtual bardic telling of our namesake tale.
Beowulf: The Only One
Odds Bodkin's latest epic tale, told with 12-string guitar music, is rugged, bloody and true to the original poem. Grateful to a Danish king for saving his father, a fearless Beowulf sails to Denmark to kill Grendel, a raiding demon. With Celtic harp extemporizations, Bodkin fills in the tale with some Viking history, including the Medieval Climate Optimum, even how Viking dragon ships were water-proofed.
Zoom begins at 5 and will conclude with a post-performance q&a with the artist and Grendel's Den's own Kari Kuelzer.
A recording will be provided to ticket holders a few days after the performance.
