Lullaby Journey

Custer LaRue, Soprano
Chris Norman, Wooden Flute
Kim Robertson, Celtic Harp

As with any long held custom, the tradition of singing lullabies has many dimensions.   The lullaby as a magical charm and a bridge to the subconscious, the use of sleep as a metaphor for death, the bedtime story lullaby, the lullaby as a love song, and lastly the lullaby that says simply "go to sleep."
