Event Description

The Winter Solstice in Legend and Song celebrates the time of the longest nights with classic evergreen lore, haunting legends of light and entertaining tales surrounded by traditional and original music and song. Featured stories include 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. Tickets at the door only $15.
Award winning performer Diane Edgecomb accompanied by Celtic harpist Margot Chamberlain and multi-instrumentalist Tom Megan offers a fascinating look at the stories behind our holiday traditions. This performance includes Solstice legends from Greece, Scandinavia, and England as well as traditional music on Celtic harp, synthesizer, accordion, and voice. Songs and sing-along moments evocative of the season, lovely instrumental melodies on Celtic harp and synthesizer round out the event.
