The White Shawl is a live musical storytelling performance, streamed live from Falun, Sweden and Lafayette, Colorado USA. Christopher Rippey and Daniel Fredriksson narrate an old folk tale, in which a young girl in the far north of Sweden befriends the mythical creatures known as vittra. As her family migrates to America, like so many did at the end of the 19th century, she brings a little of the vittra's magic with her. Based on an archival recording by Lisa Johansson Sandberg recorded in 1955, the story is now brought to life with evocative music, animations and live storytelling.
