The Winter Solstice in Legend and Song
Myth, Music and Song to Celebrate the Season!
With Diane Edgecomb and musicians Margot Chamberlain (Celtic harp) & Tom Megan (keyboard, accordion, guitar and synthesizer).
"A storyteller in the grand tradition, Edgecomb is a
virtuoso of the spoken word."
-- Publisher's Weekly
Master Storyteller Diane Edgecomb accompanied by Celtic Harpist Margot Chamberlain and multi-instrumentalist Tom Megan
offers a fascinating look at the legends behind our holiday traditions. Classic evergreen lore, haunting legends of light
and humorous tales are surrounded by traditional and original music and song.
The performance draws from Celtic, Nordic,
British, Native American, Greek and contemporary material in order to bring new meaning to winter nature traditions.
The haunting Solstice legend of the Mistletoe from Scandanavian folklore, humourous Wassaile traditions from England,
and the poignant Greek legend of the Halcyon days of peace are just a few of the pieces.
Songs and sing-along moments
evocative of the season, a traditional wassail bowle and lovely instrumental melodies on Celtic harp and synthesizer
round out the event.
