Bull Feeney's Irish Pub/Restaurant, 375 Fore Street, Portland, Maine

In May 2006, I launched Seanachie Nights (Seanachie is the Celtic word for storyteller): a monthly series of musical storytelling performances from Celtic and British culture that introduces the old stories - with all their comedy, tragedy, and adventure - to an adult audience.

A Seanachie Night: Irish Tales of Magic, Mischief, & Music

To all lovers of traditional storytelling: We have not yet returned to a monthly Seanachie Nights. But in the spirit of Saint Patrick's Day, Kurt Kish and I bring you "A Seanachie Night" at 10 Mayo Street.

"Seanachie" [pronounced "shaun-a-key"] is the Irish word for a Storyteller. To celebrate Saint Patrick's Day and all things Irish, Seanachie Lynne Cullen tells six Celtic folktales for grownups: dangerous faeries, foxy tricksters, grumpy corpses, belligerent giants, and more! With an original musical score arranged and played by Kurt Kish on electric guitar and concertina, you'll feel as though you're watching a movie with the best special effects of all: beamed straight into your mind's eye! Children 10+ welcome, too.

NOTE: Mayo Street takes every precaution, re Covid, to make sure everyone is safe. Stay tuned for more information. www.mayostreetarts.org

Stay tuned for another Seanachie Nights announcement in April!

Teig O'Kane and the Corpse


On March 16, 2019, Kurt Kish and I told six Irish folktales-with-music at the Raymond Village Community Church. My storytelling colleague Cheryl Andre was in the audience. Sherry is an artist with a unique and charming style. She made this delightful sketch of Kurt and me during the show, and I wanted to share it with you.
