Between Friday the 26th of September, 2014 and Sunday the 28th of September, once again the New Hampshire Storytelling Alliance will be hosting the White Mountain Storytelling Festival. It will take place at Waterville Valley in the heart of New Hampshire's White Mountains, and will have Odds Bodkin featuring and presenting two concerts.
Other tellers at the festival are: Mark Chamberlain, Mark Lang, Simon Brooks (me!), Cora Jo Ciampi, Peter Brodeur (who will also be opening for Odds), Lani Peterson, Joey Talbot, Gelaldine Buckley, and me!
These concerts are part of a three day event which begins on Friday evening with ghost stories at the town gazebo, stories told by Angela Klingler, Ruth Niven, Lauretta Phillips, Mike Lockett, Shelly Hershey and Andy Davis. If you like a good shiver, in amongst the fall colours, this is a great event to come to. Saturday will begin with a concert of tellers at 11 am and the day will have three concerts on top of the performances by Odds. Two of the concert of tellers will be family friendly and none will be up against Odds. There will be lots to do. If it gets a little chilly, then at noon there is a chilli cook-off in the town square! The other tellers at this year's festival will be: Mark Chamberlain, Mark Lang, Simon
Brooks (me!), Cora Jo Ciampi, Peter Brodeur (who will also be opening
for Odds), Lani Peterson, Joey Talbot, Gelaldine Buckley, and me (did I mention that already?)!
I will be performing a story at the 11 am performance at the Meeting Place.
In case you have never been to the White Mountain Storytelling Festival, I have put photographs I took at the 2012 Festival which featured Rebecca Rule and Jo Radner. Click on the link below to check them out. The photos of the bowling pumpkin are NOT here!
This is a fabulous event and is great for families. Full Festival Adult tickets can be accompanied by up to 4 children under 12 free! Families who want to go to the evening performance by Odds Bodkin (7.30 pm) will have pay $2.00 for each child! For full details of the event, please go to the New Hampshire Storytellers Alliance website and visit the Festival Page. I for one am looking forward to all the tellers who will be there; it is a GREAT line-up!
