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.


Seanachie Nights is usually held on every third Monday of the month. Admission: Free ($9 suggested donation). Email Lynne Cullen at thetwacorbies@yahoo.com or call 207-805-1062 for further details.

On March 16, 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.
