June Brown’s storytelling journey began when she heard on her mother’s lap, the poem Little Orphan Annie by James Whitcomb Riley. She was soon telling it to herself. At camp, she discovered that she had a talent for telling tales around the campfire, and she has been telling stories ever since. For the past 20 years she has been a storyteller in schools, libraries, museums, senior’s homes and other venues around the GTA. She has told at festivals, been part of the Story Jam project and Cultural Days. She has also been involved in developing a storytelling program for the Children’s Aid Society and running a storytelling venue for the Rotary Club of Toronto’s annual party for children with special needs. It doesn’t matter whether you are two or ninety, she will draw you into the story and leave you wanting more. Her favourite audience response is “When can you come back?” June is a member of Storytellers of Canada – Conteurs du Canada, Storytellers for Children, 1001 Friday Nights of Storytelling and the York Storytelling Guild. Anne Lederman is a fiddler, singer, storyteller, and multi-instrumentalist, rooted in several Canadian and World traditions: Newfoundland, Cape Breton, French Canadian/Metis, Klezmer, Irish, Ontario and the Northwest. She has learned from the masters of Old Time music in Canada, wherever she has found them. Her performances combine stories, songs, and tunes in unique and inspiring ways. Originally from Manitoba, Anne has 6 CDs under her own name of original and traditional songs and tunes and was a founding member of such ground-breaking Canadian ensembles as Muddy York, The Flying Bulgar Klezmer Band, Kalimba Kalimba and, most recently, Eh?! (nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award), as well as her own group, Fiddlesong. She is known especially for her work with Aboriginal fiddle traditions in Manitoba, and recently released her own CD from this tradition: Old Man’s Table: Tunes from Grandy Fagnan. In 2016, Anne won the Estelle Klein award for her contributions to Canadian folk music.
