Irish storyteller Lynne Cullen returns to Corner House Inn
On Thursday evening, May
9th, Portland ME storyteller Lynne Cullen weaves tales from the “old country” at the Corner House’s Storytelling Dinner program.
Lynne Cullen began telling traditional stories while living in Yorkshire, England, and has brought them over the sea to Portland, Maine. Lynne was taught to play the Anglo concertina by the great Irish player Noel Hill from County Clare.
She is the host of Seanachie Nights in Portland: a monthly show dedicated to stories and music from Britain and the Celtic tradition.
Lynne says, “Folktales have as much relevance today as they did a hundred, or a thousand, or ten thousand years ago. And because they are passed on orally, they are always evolving.” To learn more about Lynne, visit her

Storytelling Dinners are held every Thursday evening at the Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich from late October through the month of May. The Dinner begins at 6:30 pm, and the cost is $19.95 per person, plus tax and gratuity. For more information or to make a reservation contact the Corner House at 284-6219 or email
