In A Celtic Evening, Diane brings to life Ireland’s storytelling treasures from the humorous Legend of Knockgrafton to the hauntingly beautiful Deirdre of the Sorrows. The most famous of all Irish romances, Deirdre weaves together Druidic prophecies with a forbidden passion so profound it dares to defy the fates. The performance is set against a lush background of harp music: original and traditional melodies played by the versatile Margot Chamberlain on a variety of Celtic folk harps. Enjoy an evening of humor, passion and music with these two inspiring performers.
“Deirdre is nothing less than a masterpiece!” Linda Goodman, chair, Three Apples Storytelling Festival
“I’m still getting positive feedback (examples: ‘Best thing I ever heard on campus.’ ‘Let’s make it an annual event’ etc..,) Joan Laxon, Professor of Anthropology and Folklore, Pine Manor College

“Publisher’s Weekly said it best when they stated: ‘A storyteller in the grand tradition, Edgecomb is a virtuoso of the spoken word.’ She has been researching, studying, collecting and telling Celtic stories for 20 or more years and it shows…mentally and emotionally we were wherever storyteller, Ms. Edgecomb, transported us to be, while Ms. Chamberlain and her Celtic Harp made us feel at home there.” article in the Ashland Tab, March 23rd, 2006
