Diane Edgecomb, Master Storyteller, Celebrates the Solstice
Celebrate the Winter Solstice with classic evergreen lore, haunting legends of light and entertaining tales surrounded by traditional and original music and song. Diane Edgecomb, one of the most masterful and versatile voices in the storytelling movement today, will tell stories, for adults and children over age 8, including the beautiful "Legend of the Mistletoe" from Scandinavia and humorous English Wassail traditions. Master storyteller Diane Edgecomb, accompanied by Celtic harper Margot Chamberlain and multi-instrumentalist Tom Megan, offers a fascinating look at the stories behind our holiday traditions. Songs evocative of the season and lovely instrumental melodies round out the event.

This Winter Solstice performance will be a one hour event. After a fifteen minute intermission, audience members are invited to attend the church's annual Longest Night service.

With a style of telling known for rich characterizations and zany humor, Diane has been featured on NPR, the acclaimed Three Apples Storytelling Festival, Charlestown Working Theatre and has been invited to be Teller in Residence in August 2012 at the International Storytelling Center. Her first CD's received starred reviews in Publisher's Weekly and two have received Honors Awards from Storytelling World.  
With a background in piano and choral singing, Margot Chamberlain moved to Boston in the 1970's to study recorder with Marleen Montgomery and the Quadrivium, where she took up vielle and harp.
Composer/Playwright and Musician Tom Megan not only writes the music on many of the Storytelling and Harp combinations but accompanies others using a combination of piano and synthesizer. He has written several full-length musicals and is a winner of numerous awards for the musical stage.
