Storytelling at Boathouse starting a new season

On April 14 at 8pm, the Guelph Guild of Storytellers will open its 2010 concert season with guest teller Donna McCaw.

Stories continue the second Wednesday of every month through December. This year’s theme is As the Story Goes. Each concert features a guest teller, the guild members, and a short open mic time. Future guests include internationally-known Adwoa Badoe (May) and Paul Conway (September).

The guild was formed in the early 1990s to promote the oral tradition of storytelling. Mem­bers participate in local story­telling events, including Tea and Tales at the Riverside En­ab­ling Gardens in the summer, Latitudes, Storytelling Toronto, Baden StoryBarn, and monthly meetings to hone their skills. New members of all levels are always welcome.

There is no admission charged, but the guild appre­ciates donations at the end of the performance to help cover costs.
