If my life were set up a little different, I would be rolling out of bed for a late breakfast tommorrow and this is where I would go.

Here is an interesting gig that I do once a year. It is always fun and interesting to work with storytellers as well as my favourite musical friends Lina Allemano and Rob Clutton.

This year our hearts and our minds will be with the memory of our friend the great story teller Helen Porter who started and ran this event (and was the headliner too!) each year as she passed away recently.

The three stories are all fantastic tales of travel and Rob Lina and I (Being Helen) will perform some instrumental music at the beginning of the second set.
