Hailed as “a storyteller of great energy and imagination” by The Stage performing arts magazine, Diane embodies mythic moments in her stories, bringing them to vibrant life. Whether exploring folktales and personal tales, or bringing the galvanizing power of traditional legends to modern audiences, her beautifully articulated pieces bring listeners to the very heart of the tale. Edgecomb is the author of A Fire in My Heart, the first book of Kurdish folktales ever published in the English language. Diane has been featured on NPR and has received Storytelling World and Parent’s choice awards for her CDs and books. She will be accompanied on stage by Celtic harper Margot Chamberlain as they create an enchanting weave of story, music and song.
“A storyteller in the grand tradition, Edgecomb is a virtuoso of the spoken word … an entire cast rolled into one.” – Publishers Weekly
