Event Description

The Summer Solstice is a perfect time for a story and harp journey through the magical woods of the Arnold Arboretum, Boston's premiere tree sanctuary. Join us: storyteller Diane Edgecomb and Celtic harper Margot Chamberlain for our annual Story and Music Event. As twilight descends we'll stroll through cherry, evergreen and birch groves ~ celebrating nature with tree legends, songs and music from many lands.
Don't forget to make reservations this event is limited in size and sells out.

This enchanting evening of tree myths from was designed specifically for the Arboretum and takes us to some of its loveliest spots. Stories and music are drawn from the rich cultural traditions of Japan, Wales, England, Australia, Czechoslovakia, 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.

Bring a cushion to sit on if you wish and comfortable walking shoes. The journey will be approximately two miles on and off trails. Appropriate for adults and families with older children (11 and above) In case of rain, additional Solstice legends will be added to the performance and it will be held indoors at the Arboretum's Hunnewell building. Make reservations ahead at 617-384-5209 (business hours)
