Tim Van Egmond will be June 3 Song & Story Swap guest

Please come share in an evening of music and stories at the Pioneer Valley
Folklore Society Song & Story Swap.

Saturday, June 3, 7:00 p.m. at the The Nacul Center, 592 Main St., Amherst,
Mass .

Guest performer will be the musician and storyteller, Tim Van Egmond.

Raised in a musical family, a lover of books from an early age, enraptured
by daily sing-alongs at day camp, enchanted by a storyteller who performed
at his grade school, Tim Van Egmond had a lot leading him to his chosen
profession as a folksinger and storyteller from an early age. Van Egmond has
performed for over 30 years throughout the country, weaving together tales,
tunes and songs to share their wellspring of rib-tickling, spine-tingling,
heartwarming richness.

Tim has been chosen for the New England States Touring Program, and has been
a featured performer at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Three Apples
Storytelling Festival and the annual Winter Solstice Benefit Celebration in
Western Massachusetts, among many notable venues. He's also a member of the
contra dance band Swallowtail, and the folk music duo Yankee Notions.

Renowned author and storyteller Jane Yolen has said "Tim is a triple treat.
He can sing, he can play a variety of wonderful instruments, and he can tell
whopping good tales!"
