ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Founder of the long-lived Fireside Epic series, Carol’s impact on Canadian storytelling has been profound. Through her courage in telling from the oldest, longest stories she has brought courage to others. Productions of The Iliad, The Odyssey and the Kalevala in Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver have all had Carol’s inspiration at their hearts.

For her work with saga, she has been given the honorary name Carol Karlsdottir by the Icelandic-Canadian community.

She believes “storytellers come and go. It is the story that lives happily ever after.” From this comes her commitment to “Staying out of the story’s way.” Her repertoire of other saga material, of myths, folktales and literary stories from around the world is legendary. She has appeared at storytelling events across the land.
