Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Mary-Eileen, Diane, Barry, and Lorne
I’d rather wander to fair Burlington
For I’ve heard there is storytelling there.

I want Barry to teach me the tricks of the art
Mary-Eileen, Diane, Barry, and Lorne
Lorne to teach ballads, Diane folding a tale
Mary-Eileen crafting the past into lore.

So I am not going to Scarborough Fair
Mary-Eileen, Diane, Barry, and Lorne
Heart Lifting Folklore is where I am bound
To Wandering Workshops and stories aloud!

We must know by FEBRUARY 11TH if you are planning to attend the workshops on FEBRUARY 19TH.   Here is what we have heard so far:

‘The cock doth crow to let me know, if I be wise I will arise
And head off to Barry Rosen’s starting storytelling!”

Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn!
“I can’t right now, I’m off to see Diane Halpin story with origami!”

Froggy went a courtin’, uh-uh
“I changed my mind and found Lorne Brown teaching ballads instead!”

Elsie Martin’s grown so fine, she won’t get up to feed the swine.
“But I’m not too lazy to learn Herstory from Mary-Eileen McClear!”

A diller, a dollar, a 10:00 scholar, why do you rise so soon?
“To get my money and registration in the mail before the 11th!”

Goosey, goosey gander, wither shall I wander?
“To Burlington where there be workshops and a concert of folklore to warm up your heart!”

For all the information you need, please read the post before this one.  Call (905-808-3335) or email ( if you intend to come.  We’d love to see you there!  Brenda and Hildy
