Even when all of the stories in one session have ended happily ever after, and you’re waiting for the ‘once upon a times’ of the next major set of storytelling performances to commence, we want to ensure that the microphones are still alive with artistic talent. With that in mind, we’ll fill the major breaks in the action, with musical talent to rival the ‘Tellers. Some are from our very own Church, known throughout the region for its highly-touted music program. Others are from the fine arts departments of local high schools, and truly represent some the finest young talent in the local northern Delaware, southeastern Pennsylvania region.

Friday, November 4 - 6:00 to 6:50PM
The Calabrese Sisters -

Because Guenevere and Becca come from a nearly "music required" family, harmony came easily as they began their singing careers in the Calabrese Family Quartet. Today both their harmonies and their songs intertwine for a unique combination of stories and styles. Their stories stem from life experiences that can be understood by all. Their style is  fresh and spirited, incorporating elements of jazz and blues, soul and gospel,  pop and contemporary...a little bit of everything.

Saturday, November 5 - 12:15 to 12:40PM

If you want to hear music that’s truly fresh, innovative, and personal, don’t miss Kiraa in the main tent at 12:15pm. A singer-songwriter and pianist, Kiraa is a high school vocal major who has crafted a sophisticated sound and a repertoire of savvy, original material. Her roots are in certainly the contemporary ‘Alternative’ genre, and some might compare her sound to Inara George, but any comparison that could be made is more about telling you what an artist isn’t. Come hear who Kiraa is!

Saturday, November 5 - 6:00 to 6:40PM
The Ecumeniclectones -

The Ecumeniclectones are the alter ego of the Folk Consort that performs at the Contemporary Service (9:00am) every Sunday at Lower Brandywine Presbyterian Church. Their music is spirited and, well, eclectic. As the great Jimmy Buffett says, “There’s a thin line between Saturday night and Sunday morning.” Well folks, the Ecumeniclectones are performing on Saturday night, and their set is not-to-be-missed! (Even while you’re enjoying the Chili Cook-Off or other Festival Cusine.)

The Lower Brandywine Storytelling Festival is the anchor event in Lower Brandywine Presbyterian Church's Community Outreach Calendar of Events. It's fun. It's Family-friendly. And it's FREE! So forward this web address to your family, friends, neighbors and associates. But encourage them  to register today, because space is limited.
