| Niagara Celtic's Great Storytellers|
One weekend, One-Thousand Stories
A great legacy of the Celts is their ability to bring to life the past, present and other magical realms! Niagara Celtic ensures numerous chances to hear stories of all kinds. Sit for a spell with The Bard of Basswood or Viking Hersir Torvaldr Torgason and you'll discover tales as you've never heard before. Step up to the Celtic Arts Stage for stories from our visiting Shanacies (spelling varies). You can even follow the Bards of Bruery...traveling minstrels who sing you tales of their own~ just be sure to thank them (beer is accepted).
