We hope you'll be able to come to our


Saturday February 11, we (Tim and Leanne) perform at the Four Corners Schoolhouse, in East Montpelier.

In addition to a substantial serving of stories, the program includes songs, instrumentals on concertina and ukulele, and a bit of magic. Some of the material is well suited to the Valentine season; for example Tim plans to perform a classic romantic tale from his solo storytelling album, and will sings a couple of ballads he got from his mother. But there will also be plenty of old-time snark. Duo tales will include the ever-popular Hungry Wolf's Lucky Day, Water of Life, and The King and the Thrush.

The show runs from 7 PM to 9 PM, with an intermission. Tickets: $10 adults, $5 kids, $30 family maximum, complementary refreshments. For information or to reserve a seat, just reply to this message or call 223 9103. Walk-ins are welcome, but should maybe come a bit early.

Four Corners School: 945 Vincent Flats Road, just up from the East Montpelier Elementary School.


Hope to see you there!



East Montpelier Four Corners School is a repurposed historic one-room-schoolhouse, with a small stage, fifty seats, and a little kitchen, located at the junction of Dodge, Vincent Flats, Snow Hill, and Putnam Roads, about a quarter mile from the modern elementary school.

Ir belongs to the town, and gets a lot of use: regular senior workout sessions, acoustic performances by touring musicians, historical society meetings, parties, rehearsals, workshops, and so forth.

It's a great, intimate venue.




A variety series of close-up unamplified performances for adults, children, and mixed audiences.

All shows contain Tim and Leanne's mix of storytelling, music & old-timey schtick, with occasional ballads, skits, stunts, magic, singalongs etc.

All shows will make you laugh and think.
