Virtual "Folk Songs and Nature Tales" - West Caldwell

The West Caldwell Public Library’s summer Storytellers Festival, based on the theme “Imagine Your Story,” continues with a virtual “Folk Songs and Nature Tales” program for adults featuring award-winning NJ musician and storyteller Ken Galipeau on Thursday, June 18 at 6:30 pm on Zoom.

Galipeau will sing some humorous folk songs and share some fetching nature tales from two of his CDs “Collection: A Song Sampler for Adults” and “Fishin’ with Ish.” His engaging performances include stories, poems, and folk songs sung with guitar or drum and his material is humorous and poignant, both for listening and participating. Often times his songs are story songs or ballads, sometimes they are just for fun or add an “amen” to a just completed tale. Besides telling traditional tales, he also tells personal stories that are reworked about the quirky characters in his life.

An award-winning storyteller for over 13 years, Galipeau is a collector of stories, songs, and poems that touch our hearts and funny bone. He has performed in schools, libraries, churches, storytelling festivals, coffeehouses, private parties, and on cable television all over New Jersey.

This virtual “Folk Songs and Nature Tales” program will be “live-streamed” on Zoom. To register for the program, email ethan.galvin@westcaldwell.bccls.org and he will share the Zoom link with you.
