ABOUT OUR HOST
Mary Fearon has been performing professionally since 1997. She has facilitated workshops for children and adults from St. John’s to Australia and places in between. Mary has worked in provincial schools telling traditional stories and working with students to develop their own style of storytelling. This process has included telling their stories through spoken word, shadow puppets, hand puppets and murals reflecting their interpretation of the story. Mary has a particular love for traditional Newfoundland material and how Jack fits into the story, how they reflect our distinct culture and the connection they have to stories told in other parts of the world.
The St. John’s Storytelling Circle runs from 7:00 – 9:00 pm at Erin’s Pub, with opportunities for new storytellers to spin a yarn. Erin’s Pub is located at 186 Water Street, St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada.
The Storytelling Circle meets on the SECOND WEDNESDAY of each month (Remembrance Day excepted)
The Storytelling Circle and other Festival events are cell phone-free zones and absolutely NO recording is permitted without the PRIOR permission of the teller and the organizers.
