Our Special Featured Programs
Educational and Entertaining
We love to educate while we entertain, bringing to life history of places and people with songs and laughter. A good friend of ours Dad said once, “oh he lives in the hysterical section of town” maybe Ed had it right, we teach hysteric history!
Here are some of our programs we offer Libraries and schools
1. White Cloverine Salve and The Red Clay Country
Nancee’s paternal Grandmother was dustbowl refugee, leaving Oklahoma in the late 30’s for California. Through passages from the Grapes of Wrath, first person narratives from “Grandma” music of the era and funny personal stories we bring to life her story and the plight of those looking for a better life.
2. Fun on the Farm
Living on an 80 acre farm for over 20 years and performing at The McHaffie’s Homestead , Silver Dollar City we have quite the collection of songs and stories from the past and present.Some true some true enough. We share pioneer ways, folk songs of the Ozarks, present day education on heirlooms and natural gardening. All with Mike and Nancee’s own brand of fun.
3. Ireland to The Ozarks in Song and Story
Our love of the Celtic traditions and the journey they took to America comes alive here. We explore origins of songs from Ireland and how our folk songs merged. Our hill melodies and country tunes can be traced back to tunes from Ireland. Their jigs, reels, waltzes and hornpipes are the beginnings of our modern day bluegrass. Enjoy an afternoon of music, history and craic (gaelic for fun)with EznDil
4. Christmas from Ireland to the Ozarks
Celtic Christmas Traditions, tales and songs bringing to life the Spirit of Christmas from the Emerald Isle. Thru music and story, Mike and Nancee, EznDiL, share the Irish blarney and the Message of the Season in Ireland , then sail the ocean to the hollers of the Ozark Hills and present an old and new Ozark Christmas.

5. Halloween EznDiL Style!
October brings haunted tales to life! With creepy songs and scary stories, Mike and Nancee, EznDiL, weave a program of scares, laughter, sad legends and monsters real and not so real. Many years of gathering lore with a wicked twist is a specialty for these two. But no fear! We can tailor this program for any age.
Length can be tailored to your needs
6. Irelands own Mythical Beings
Ireland has their own Gods, Goddesses, Fairies, banshees and
Saints. Not quite as popular as Greek and Roman legends the
Irish still tell of the Great Finn McCool and The Hound of Ulster.
As we share their heritage thru story and of course song, you
will learn maybe for the first time of these beings so close to
the Irish heart.
Mike Micham has been writing and playing music for nearly his
entire life and has some great insights on how a song can come
from life’s experiences or inside your head. Thru simple and
engaging thoughts and methodology he will show you the
basics of putting your own words down on paper to a melody in
a very nonjudgmental environment.
Nancee Walker-Micham can make storytelling fun and break
down the barrier of stage fright. Concentrating on beginners to
give them the tools to tell a story, have fun and work on your
own style with movement, character voices and confidence.
Nancee has been on the stage since her teens and holds a B.A.
