In the meantime, TaelStrum is getting primed and ready for action for the Montreal Fringe 2012 (look for Headless Goat Productions). We’re making a few appearances in various venues in April, May, and June, so keep an eye out for us. Some of our appearances include:
- April: Storyteller movie Fundraiser, SACOMSS: Fire with Water Art Show (web, Facebook)
- May: Venue Fundraiser
- June: Madpoetix Feature
And just in case you were planning to do this anyways, the Montreal Mirror is holding it’s annual Best of Montreal survey. We consider it an honour and a close, personal favour if you were to vote for TaelStrum as Best Spoken Word Act. Will you support us?
Last weekend, I was hosting a fundraiser where we had magicians, musicians, dancers, singers, and storytellers. Happily, my friend Scarlet recorded TaelStrum’s telling of Lex & the Devil.
My favorite moment occurs at 4:50 when we get our Rock Star experience where I realize the crowd is telling the story with me, so I go quiet and let them say it as a group. It was golden.
Happy New Year to you all! It’s been a couple of months since we’ve had anything to report, but we hope that you’ve all been enjoying what 2012 has to offer so far!
Tune in on January 24th 2012 on CKUT between 4pm and 5pm as Shayne and I will be performing live on the radio during the “The Word I Heard” show hosted by Karen Robins and Tim Beeler. We hope you’ll have a listen!
Update: The show has been posted! You can stream or download the podcast from the CKUT Archives. Go to January 24th 2012 — Hour 2 and have a listen! Our part of the interview starts at 21:15.
