Stars and Seas: Stories and Songs from Far and Away
Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 8:00 pm
Westboro Masonic Hall
Jacqui du Toit, Acacia Lyra, Jack Pyl, Marc Vautour
Tickets $20 (going on sale in December)

Stories and songs melding fire and ice, beating drums and rolling ocean waves. Award-winning storyteller Jacqui du Toit weaves enchanted tales of mythological creatures from the vast frozen North to Africa and South America. The musical texture will be equally exotic, with sounds from the Celtic harp duo Acacia Lyra (Janine Dudding and Susan Sweeney Hermon), percussionist Jack Pyl and Marc Vautour on didgeridoo.

Later we’ll be announcing more events, including the return of Chrysalis, in which Ottawa-area performers present the works of Ottawa-area songwriters.
