It's sure to be a fun edition of Tuesday Night at the Museum on June 19th at 7pm. Kathy Kompass from the Ottawa StoryTellers presents Oatcakes and Heartache.
You're sure to enjoy a fine evening of Scottish Folk and Fairy Tales. Come celebrate the Scottish settlers, who braved the wild Atlantic in search of a better life. They had few material goods but many brought stories with them, stories from the Highlands, the Lowlands, the Orkneys and the Outer Hebrides, stories that helped sustain them in their, often lonely, struggle to build a new life in Canada.
Scots gathered by many a hearth, on a cold winter’s night, to enjoy cherished magical tales of a blue-eyed hare, a witch and a swarm of bees; a water kelpie, a wise old woman and a courageous boy; and a beautiful maiden, a fisher lad and a mermaid. This is a family show suitable for children ten years of age and older.
This event is proudly presented by the Lennox & Addington County Museum & Archives. Tickets are $3 each and are available at the door.
