Renowned NH musician, dance caller, poet, and storyteller Dudley Laufman, of Canterbury NH, brings his fiddle and dry Yankee wit to the Corner House Inn’s Storytelling Dinner Program on Thursday, Dec. 14th. Dudley has toured throughout the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii), as well as Canada, England, Greece and Turkey. He has published several books of poetry, of dances and about musicians, as well as numerous documentary cassettes. In addition to being a Yankee storyteller and fiddler over the past 55 years, Dudley has played accordion, concertina, and harmonica.
In September of 2009 Dudley was awarded the nation’s highest honor in the folk and traditional arts – the National Heritage Fellowship. The National Endowment for the Arts, which bestows the fellowships, presented the award to Dudley, only the third NH resident to receive such an award, in a Washington DC ceremony.
