This delightful weave of story, music and song brings alive the dramatic myths that surround our favorite garden flowers. A master storyteller, Diane Edgecomb entertains and enchants, transforming into the characters in her tales bringing each story to vibrant life. The centerpiece of the performance is the Persian legend of The Nightingale and Rose. Diane’s original adaptation follows this exotic love story through the ages weaving together myths from many cultures that speak of the rose and its origins. Flower tales from many lands include that of the lamentable Narcissus flower and the Ojibway Native American story about the Dandelion. The performance is completed by elegant harp accompaniment by Margot Chamberlain, songs, Celtic harp interludes and entertaining pieces about the mysterious “Language of Flowers,” celebrated in Victorian times. Celebrate flowers and the stories that have been told about them through the ages with this enchanting performance. This event is also available as a Video on Demand, Streaming Video and Hybrid Combination of Video and Discussion of Flowers and their folkloric disguises.

Looking for a speaker for our garden club at Greenbriar Oceanaire in Waretown NJ. Are you in NJ? We usually have around 100 women show up in our ballroom. We are fully masked and temperature checked. Looking for a speaker for February, March or April.

Greetings Susan! I am a Boston based teller and troupe so probably it would be cost prohibitive to travel to you. I can add your email to our list in case we tour in your area. And my Folktales of Flowers is also for sale as a Video on Demand with Q and A and as a video DVD for sale. Thanks for your interest!
