"Trittil, Littil and the Birds" is a story from Iceland about an
adventurous young man who outwits a troll, and of course wins his
good fortune. There are many trolls living under the bridges and in
the caves of Nordic folklore, but in this case the troll is female.
Which is entirely appropriate, since we have two female guest
performers returning to join us.
We were inspired by the famous troll lurking under the Aurora Bridge in the Femont District of Seattle, where we were able to spend a few days showing our guests the sights, including the Experience Music Project, Pikes Place Market, the Chittenden Locks, and Elliot Bay Book Company. None of us got eaten by a troll, but we did get almost dissolved by the rain.
