Celebrate the time of the darkest nights with haunting legends of light, entertaining tales and traditional music and song to celebrate the season. Spoken word and theatre artist Diane Edgecomb brings to life the ancient myths that reveal the deep meaning behind winter holiday traditions. Featured stories include the Scandinavian “Legend of the Mistletoe,” the Greek myth “The Coming of the Days of Peace.” as well as humorous English Wassail traditions. Celtic harper Margot Chamberlain and multi-instrumentalist Tom Megan accompany the tales with instrumental melodies and bring traditional and original songs evoking the warmth of the season, rounding out the event. Traditional refreshments, including a Wassail Bowle, will be served at intermission in the Loring-Greenough House’s elegant eighteenth century dining room.
