About “From Darkness to Light”
Celebrate the Winter Solstice with haunting legends of light, evergreen traditions, and entertaining tales surrounded by traditional and original music and song. Oracle award winning storyteller Diane Edgecomb has researched and brought to life many unusual tales of the longest nights including the Legend of the Mistletoe from Scandinavia, humorous English Wassail traditions, and the poignant Greek myth of The Halcyon Days of Peace. Accompanied by Celtic harper Margot Chamberlain and multi-instrumentalist Tom Megan this performance offers a fascinating look at the myths that give meaning to winter holiday traditions. Songs evocative of the season and lovely instrumental melodies round out the event.
"A storyteller in the grand tradition, Edgecomb is a virtuoso of the spoken word, an entire cast rolled into one." Publisher's Weekly
