Album Notes
Marylyn Peringer’s work has always been a bridge to other cultures. Her unique bilingual style of telling stories from French Canada has captivated audiences across the country for decades. And now, exploring her Maltese heritage, Marylyn has gathered and translated classic stories from Malta, uncovering the dozens of cultural influences of the country.

In Marylyn's words, "The stories recorded here are some of my favourites. Discovering the folklore of French Canada, so little known to anglophones like me, was like coming across a hidden treasure. I learned the stories quickly, one after another, so eager was I to tell them. The Maltese stories took more time. They're the result of many trips to Malta - partly for research, partly for visits with my relatives - who have told me that my grandmother, Georgina Tabone, was an excellent storyteller!"

Marylyn came to storytelling through her study of French, both in Toronto and in Paris. When she discovered the folk tales and legends of French Canada, she began sharing them with others, mostly with the young. She has visited over a thousand schools across Canada, telling tales in French and English about the fascinating inhabitants of the French-Canadian spirit world. In recent years, Marylyn has been exploring her Maltese heritage, traveling to the small Mediterranean island to research and translate its rich stories.

Pieces of My Heart is a beautiful celebration of two cultures that have been at the core of Marylyn's life in story, and StorySave is very proud to have been a part of this project.
