Jammin' Town Musicians, The

Based on the famous Brothers Grimm tale, “The Bremen Town Musicians,” I’ve adapted the story with the help of translations from the original German by Andrea Leap. I was inspired by this wonderful tale and infused it with my own love of American music and a special place in my heart for old animals.
