New Age Gawain and the Green Knight
~ A Mischievous Medieval Romp ~

Story Cafe

Featuring Storyteller Diane Edgecomb
Accompanied by Margot Chamberlain on Celtic harp
January 22, 2011

Loosely based on the 14th century poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Diane Edgecomb’s comedic adaptation has New Age Arthurian knights running for their therapists faster than you can say “Litigation!” Celtic harper Margot Chamberlain provides an evocative background of original and traditional tunes as we take this fun-loving journey along the ‘road less traveled by.’

Diane Edgecomb is one of the most versatile voices in the storytelling movement today, known for the seamless way her performances weave together story and music.  Diane has received three Storytelling World Honors Awards as well as a Year’s Best Performance Award from the Boston Herald.

Margot Chamberlain studied piano at the Oberlin Conservatory and early music with Marleen Montgomery.  She enjoys the wide range of expression, from earthy to ethereal, from mysterious to comedic, that the harp makes possible.

As a duo, Diane and Margot combine rich story material with carefully orchestrated underscoring of original and traditional music.  They have been featured on National Public Radio as well as at theaters, coffeehouses, colleges, museums, and nature centers throughout the United States.

“A storyteller in the grand tradition, Edgecomb is a virtuoso of the spoken word…. an entire cast rolled into one.”  Publisher’s Weekly

“National Public regulars Diane Edgecomb and Margot Chamberlain have elevated storytelling to mythic heights.”  The Worcester Phoenix
