About Midsummer Magic
Midsummer Magic is a story and music celebration of the Summer Solstice drawn from cultures around the world. This delightful and entertaining performance brings to life ancient legends of transformation, tree-spirits and fireflies. Midsummer Eve is traditionally a time of magic, a transitional moment in nature, when the fairy world can meet our own. Accompanied by harper Margot Chamberlain, master storyteller Diane Edgecomb brings us into a liminal world of twilight and beauty. This captivating event speaks of the deep meaning to be found in the natural world around us. The one-hour performance is suitable for adults and an older family audience.
The combination of both your talents made for an inspirational evening that moved the audience to laughter and to tears, and left us with a feeling that magic was in the air.”
