    Join us for a Celebration of Traditional Native Culture through storytelling, song and dance.

    Sure to tug at your heart strings and tickle your funny bone, Raven’s inspirational performance is guaranteed to ignite a new sense of insight into First Nations culture that inevitably fosters unity and celebration. 

    Strategically weaving traditional Native worldview throughout her performance, Raven’s ability to accelerate awareness and enthusiasm in others coupled with her passion for life is undoubtedly contagious.  Thée Winddancer combines her avid interests in cosplay, storytelling, and dance in imaginative ways.

    The Power of Telling Stories - Every Day!

     

    Through  a hands-on,  fun, interactive participatory workshop reflecting traditional storytelling techniques and styles, Heather encourages us to use our authentic voice and embrace who we are when telling stories. The artform of Storytelling is a very powerful tool in promoting a better understanding among us, and breaking down barriers. Most importantly, storytelling can be very cathartic and healing; it releases the mind to allow us to imagine, get in touch with ourselves and others, be creative, share, and to play! In this workshop, Heather will inspire the storyteller in you! She brings in her guitar, a few props and instruments, diverse stories, and of course her very own authentic voice.

    Artistic director: Heather Whaley. Co-directors: The Backseat Balladeers.

    StoryFusion Cabaret! Bringing rich, enlightening and memorable stories to audiences.

    Spend an evening immersed in Celtic story and song.  Relish stories of beginnings, rebirths, arrivals and returns from across the Celtic world.

    Hugh Cotton has told stories in schools, markets, cafes, forests and festivals from Brantford to Brazil.  He is especially drawn to Celtic myth - exploring, among other things, the Mabinogion and the stories of Finn McCool and his line.

    Brian Walsh has passion for storytelling and a background in Celtic Studies, World Religions, and Psychotherapy.  He has told Celtic stories at numerous venues, including the Toronto Storytelling Festival; on stage at Dundas Square; and deep in the woods, around a campfire with friends. 

    Pagan’s Folly…pure pleasure! Nothing traditional about them, though they will play tunes your heart and soul will delight in. Memories of nights around the kitchen table, or evenings down at a local pub in Ireland or Scotland, will come flooding back!
