Presentations


Grimms Fairy Tales: What Your Mother Didn't Tell You!: Growing up, we all heard the stories of Snow White, Red Riding Hood, and Beauty and the Beast. But each of these tales comes from older, darker tales, and carries with it dark, erotic underpinnings. Kenny Klein explores the deep meanings of the tales collected by the Grimms, adding material from traditional songs and older myths to give a view of the real stories of these characters.

The Erotic World of Fairie: Sexuality In British Fairy Lore: How does folklore view the sexuality of the creatures we know as Fairies, Elves and Selkies? Kenny explores the erotic conduct of magical creatures, consorting with each other and with humans. Learn why certain creatures were to be avoided for their sexual whiles, and why it is best to stay away from the roses of Carter Hall.

Mojo and Magic in Blues Music: Blues is an American musical culture with roots in African, Irish and English folklore. Kenny Klein talks about the origins of Blues music, and its roots in voodoo lore and Southern magic, the essential Blues rhythms derived from Afro-Cuban drum patterns, and the magic and tribal origins of chant-and-dance traditions like the Mardi Gras Indians and Talking Blues, which evolved into Rap and Hip-Hop.
