Description
Subterranean trolls raise an orphaned boy, who helps them fight back against an evil exterminator and make peace with the fearful residents of an upper-crust Victorian-era town known for its world-class cheeses. The two things the people of this posh town treasure most are their children and their cheeses; unfortunately, those are also the things that a race of unsightly, sewer-dwelling creatures - covet most. Clad in cast-off cardboard boxes as they scuttle about underground, they may look like a fearsome bunch, but are actually quite friendly.

The Blue Muse Roots Jam will meet monthly at the Moore Library on Saturdays, 12:30 - 5:30 p.m. If you've been looking for the opportunity to meet and play with other musicians, this is it. No charge, no tricks or gimmicks, just bring your instrument, and your interest. All skill levels are welcome and all instruments (guitar, harp, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, bass, etc.) If you don't play but love music, you're welcome too. We'll all have a foot stomping good time. Registration is not required, just show up and have fun. For more information contact Bill at bluemuserootsjam@gmail.com or visit the groups' website at www.bluemuse.org.
