Event Description

Ancient legends of trees with music and songs from cultures around the world accompany this twilight stroll through the beautiful groves of Boston’s Arnold Arboretum. The performance event, created by award-winning storyteller Diane Edgecomb and Celtic harper Margot Chamberlain, was specifically designed for the tree sanctuary and takes us to some of its loveliest spots. Stories and music are drawn from the rich cultural traditions of Japan, Wales, England, Australia, Russia and Native America. The evening culminates with the haunting Czech legend “The Wild Woman of the Birch Grove” told among the birches of Bussey Hill at sunset.

Two performances: Friday, June 17 and Saturday June 18, 6:30-8:30 pm.
Tickets are $20 through June 10th and $25 after. 

Bios
Diane and Margot have been featured on NPR and at storytelling festivals, coffeehouses and theaters. Diane is known for her unique style of storytelling, where she embodies the various characters and scenes in a tale, bringing each moment alive. For this she has won the first and only National Oracle Award for Storytelling Excellence in the Northeast as well as five Storytelling World Awards. Margot Chamberlain has performed with numerous early music groups including the Revels. Her versatile approach to harp and song brings an underlying poetic weave to support each tale.
