‘Around The Fireside’

Storytelling with Kate Corkery and Special Guest Jan Blake 

Plus Open Floor Spots

Kate is an Irish storyteller with a background in acting, singing and language teaching. Born and educated in Cork, she originally left Ireland to work in Kenya, after which she moved to Europe, performing in a variety of theatres before joining UK-based Common Lore, a company of storyteller/musicians from different folkloric backgrounds.

This month she will be joined by the fantastic Jan Blake and the amazing percussionist, John Pradere, who will bring us excerpts from their show:

Birds and Slaves & Stuff; Tales of Magic & Wonder

‘Conjure women, shapeshifting babies, JuJu trees and stubborn chiefs all inhabit the landscape of these tales of magic from Africa, the Caribbean and the Deep South. Told by Jan Blake & accompanied by percussionist, John Pradere.’
