Two storytellers coming to museum

The Civic Museum and the Guelph Guild of Storytellers present an even­ing of storytelling on, March 26 featuring Tom Lips, of Ottawa, and Mary McCullum Balda­saro, of Kitchener.
The program begins at 7:30pm. This is the fourth an­nual By Word of Mouth event.
Lips is a teller of traditional and original tales, and a singer-songwriter with three record­ings. Since 1992, he has shared stories of high adventure, laugh­ter, and the supernatural at such venues as the Ottawa, Toronto, Westport, and North Bay Storytelling Festivals, the Governor-General’s Residence, the National Arts Centre 4th Stage, and the Canadian Museum of Civilization.
Baldasaro credits her teach­ers, the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Cluny, for introducing her to her first love, stories, and to the magical power of words to touch the heart. Currently a teach­er, she expresses story as a singer, an actor, and as a playwright.  Her repertoire ran­g­es from the traditional to her own original work. She has per­formed at the Latitudes Festival in Kitchener, and at the Toronto Storytelling Festival with other members of the Baden Storytellers Guild.
Tickets are $10 per person and available now at Guelph Civic Museum. Refreshments will be served.
The museum is located at 6 Dublin Street South.
