The Lorne Brown StorySave CD Release
Sunday, September 11
Lorne Brown can usually be found in some chimney corner, picking his 5-string banjo and singing an old ballad. When he can be pried from his corner you might find him performing with the Ballad Project or Four in Hand; acting as artist director for the Legless Stocking, an exciting new company combing various art forms with storytelling; or simply on his own.
Lorne is one of the co-founders of The Storytellers School of Toronto. For twelve years he was the editor of Appleseed Quarterly, the Canadian Journal of Storytelling. He also used to edit The Canadian Folk Music Bulletin. He has performed in every Canadian province, and in the United States and Britain. He has appeared in major storytelling and folk festivals our country, as well as on radio and television.
Lorne has appeared in two film documentaries: “Sketches of Our Town” with Harvey Kirck, and Bonnie Landry’s “We Were Here”, the story of the Chantry Island lighthouse.
In his free time, he contemplates such questions as why his wild oats have turned into shredded wheat.
With a special – some would say passionate – interest in Canadiana, Lorne has developed programs featuring traditional Canadian folksongs, Canadian folktales, and historical stories.
