Celebrate the longest nights with traditional Solstice stories and songs evoking the warmth of the season. Oracle award-winning storyteller Diane Edgecomb weaves together a tapestry of ancient tales: evergreen myths, legends of light and entertaining stories that reveal the deep meaning behind our winter holiday traditions. Accompanied by Celtic harper Margot Chamberlain and multi-instrumentalist Tom Megan, this theatrical storytelling features the Scandinavian “Legend of the Mistletoe,” folkloric music and song from many lands as well as humorous Wassail traditions. Complimentary seasonal refreshments including a traditional Wassail bowle of mulled cider are included in the price of admission. (Please note that the Saturday and Sunday events are matinees with refreshments after. Friday evening has two acts with an intermission).
