Dalton: Storyteller to present intergenerational program on New England heritage

Posted

The Council on Aging will celebrate the diverse heritage of the New England Region by presenting an intergenerational performance by Parents’ Choice Award winning storyteller Davis Bates at 12:30 p.m. Monday, May 5, at the Dalton Senior Center, 40 Field St. Extension.

Titled "Celebrating New England: Songs and Stories for Everyone," the program will involve the audience in a variety of cultural traditions. It will include farming stories and songs from the past and present, sea songs and chanteys, Native American stories, ghost stories, and family tales.

There will also be sing-alongs, and a short lesson in how to play the spoons, and an appearance by a dancing wooden dog named Bingo.

This performance is funded, in part, by a grant from the Dalton Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

Information: (413) 684-2000.
