Ever wondered what the servants at Victoria Mansion might have done when the family was out in the evenings during the Halloween season? With the help of storyteller Lynne Cullen and musician Kurt Kish, Victoria Mansion will recreate the spooky Celtic tales that would have been common among the Irish residents of the city. Aimed at kids aged 6-15, these tales are spooky, but not terrifying, and will be told in the rarely-seen basement of the Mansion!

This event will be held for two nights, with performances at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. each night. $10 per child under 15, includes 1 free adult. Additional adults, $16.

Lynne began her training as a storyteller in England and is the host of a monthly storytelling series called Seanachie Nights dedicated to stories and music from the British Isles and the Celtic tradition. Lynne is also a playwright and visual artist and plays Irish-style concertina.

About Kurt Kish:

Kurt taught himself music and guitar after finding a 4-string tenor acoustic guitar in his mother’s closet when he was 14. Later he studied music theory and composition. As a solo musician he has developed an original voice on electric guitar. For the past 5 years, Kurt has added Ukulele to his musical endeavors, on which he focuses on instrumental Celtic traditional music. With storyteller/writer Lynne Cullen, Kurt merges the ancient myths and legends with music inspired by Black//Folk Metal, traditional, and classical sources to bring the old adventures to life.
