Often told in a way that makes the narrator seem to have been part of the story, a "tall tale" is good-natured yarn that includes unbelievable elements, related as if they were factual. Fundamental to many cultures, tall tales often contain legendary figures in exaggerated exploits, while others are simply a way to demonstrate who can boast the most.
This week on Wind & Rhythm, we spin a musical yarn with these Tall Tales.
