ABOUT OUR HOST
Derrick was born in St. Johns Newfoundland and moved to his present hometown of Torbay as a teenager in the early 70’s. He remembers as a teenager hanging out at his future in laws as they would host parties full of traditional Irish and Newfoundland music and dancing and how this influenced his love of all things traditional. It wasn’t until his wife Patsy got tired watching him play air guitar and bought him his first real guitar at the age of 45 that he immersed himself in learning to play and sing.
Derrick is chairperson and a founding member of the Torbay Folk Arts Council, as well as a member of the Torbay Folk Group, and the Killick Folk. After watching his good friend Gary Green tell his stories he decided to take part in a storytelling workshop and is hooked. He told his first story as part of the workshop and is now excited to be part of the storytellers circle.
The St. John’s Storytelling Circle runs the second Wednesday of each month 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 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.
