Singer, storyteller and poet Kate Chadbourne
is delighted to return to the
Corner House Inn on Thursday,
May 23rd with a program of songs and stories that celebrate the learning of lessons and the winning of wisdom. The thirst for knowledge is infectious, and all who gather for stories and supper stand a chance to become scholars themselves as they learn Irish words, songs, and at least one crucial Irish blessing.
Kate’s performances combine traditional tales with music for voice, harp, flutes, and piano. Kate holds a Ph.D. in Celtic Languages and Literatures from Harvard where she has been teaching Irish language and folklore for more than ten years –but the heart of her understanding of Irish folk tradition comes from encounters with singers, storytellers, and great talkers in Ireland.
Kate has been a featured “tradition bearer” in the Revels Salon series and in the Gaelic Roots Concert Series at Boston College. Her music was featured on NPR’s programs, “Cartalk” and “All Songs Considered,” and songs from her latest CD, The Irishy Girl, are played on Irish radio programs throughout the country. The Harp-Boat, a collection of poems about her father, a Maine lobsterman, won the Kulupi Press 2007 Sense of Place Chapbook Contest and was published in 2008.
