Jacki Lyden welcomes to the NPR Performance Studio members of Siamsa Tire, the National Folk Theatre of Ireland. Originally an informal collective of church choir singers, Siamsa Tire is now a widely-recognized theater company. They run two training centers in County Kerry to promote traditional Irish song, dance and storytelling. They recently brought their 26-member production to Washington D.C.'s Ford's Theatre.
