Special Press Release from the Berkshire Athenaeum

The Berkshire Athenaeum is pleased to announce a free family event!  

Please join the children’s department on Tuesday, August 18th at 1:00 PM as StoryCrafters present Stories and Music.

Barry Marshall, and Jeri Burns, PhD have been working together as The Storycrafters since 1991, and have been storytellers for even longer than that. In addition to being nationally renowned storytellers, they are award-winning radio show hosts, recording artists, writers. They perform and teach their art form in schools, libraries, and other venues all over the US and the British Isles. They have been featured performers at storytelling and folk festivals nationally and internationally.

Jeri and Barry believe in the time-tested wisdom of traditional stories, and share that wisdom with today’s audiences. They strive to honor world cultures by telling the old stories in respectful ways, often integrating the musical instruments, songs or dances indigenous to that region. Then of course, look out for their original modern renditions of the oldest stories … some of their most requested material. 

No registration is required.  Ages 5-92. Children under 10 must be accompanied at all times by an adult over 18 years of age.
