Diane Edgecomb

One of the most versatile voices in the storytelling movement today, Diane has been lauded by Publisher’s Weekly as a master of her craft. Her Storytelling Concerts accompanied by harper Margot Chamberlain have timeless themes ranging from Solstice Events rich in seasonal mythology to classic Celtic tales, such as her award-winning adaptation of Deirdre of the Sorrows. Original stories include Storytelling World Honors Award winner Pattysaurus and Twilight of the Stones a true ghost story about the Standing Stones of England. Nationally recognized for her leadership in linking storytelling to nature themes and environmental education. Edgecomb has designed performances and workshops for leading nature organizations throughout the Northeast. She has been featured regularly at Three Apples Storytelling Festival, on NPR, at Charlestown Working Theater and at acclaimed folk clubs such as Club Passim. Her book A Fire in My Heart: Kurdish Tales, consisting of folktales collected firsthand from Kurdish storytellers, was published by Libraries Unlimited/Greenwood Press in January, 2008. Publisher’s Weekly stated: “A storyteller in the grand tradition, Edgecomb is a virtuoso of the spoken word."
