Join Diane and multi-instrumentalist Tom Megan for a featured performance of The Winter Solstice in Legend and Song, at Crandall Public Library in Glen Falls, NY. This will be Diane’s third time performing at the Crandall Library for their patrons. The show will feature several stories that give us insight into the holiday traditions of many cultures, and will be followed by a Q & A with the musicians and tellers.
The Winter Solstice in Story and Song
Award winning performer Diane Edgecomb accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Tom Megan offers a fascinating look at the stories behind our holiday traditions.
The tales include classic evergreen lore, haunting legends of light and entertaining tales are surrounded by traditional and original music and song. The beautiful Legend of the Mistletoe from Scandinavian folklore, humorous Wassail traditions from England, and the poignant Greek legend of The Halcyon Days of Peace are just a few of the stories. There will also be moments for you to sing-along with songs evocative of the season.
“What a fabulous performance! The stories were fascinating and the music was beautiful we had so many people stop by to say how much they enjoyed it. It was the perfect way to start off the winter season.’ Liz Bailey Morse Institute Library, Natick, MA
The compliments I heard as we filed out for intermission may have burned your ears: ‘so amazingly talented’, ‘versatile’, ‘drew us right in’, ‘we were THERE’, ‘funny and so expressive’, …and you made it all look so fun and easy.” Liz Gruber, Hartford, CT
