About this Event

Naughty By Nature. Backseat Balladeers and friends share the cleanest naughty stories, ballads, blues songs and dirty ditties they know! Join the Backseat Balladeers as we share songs and stories that will bring you to a laughing climax!

The Backseat Balladeers is a casual group that sings ballads and songs for the sheer joy of spreading lyrics and music for generations to come. It formed in 2007 as a result of Storytelling Toronto’s Ballad 101 and 201 courses led by the esteemed Lorne Brown, teller of old tales and singer of old songs. They performed their debut at Nuit Blanche with Storytelling Toronto in 2009 at Artscape Wychwood Barns and at the 2011 Toronto Festival at Harbourfront Centre.

Membership has changed over the years, however original members, Karen Blair, Donna Dudinsky, Meryl Arbing, Kim Michele, Pat Bisset, and Heather Whaley are some of the voices taking the stage to share stories and ballads and songs. Whether tragic, historical, romantic or comic, all invoke powerful emotions and have significance in our lives. As with many ballads and folk songs, audience participation is encouraged!

StoryFusion Cabaret! is Storytelling Toronto's annual concert series. We showcas some of the best talent in the city and cover all genres of storytelling (traditional, original, true personal, spoken word) as well as storytelling through music.

Storytelling Toronto is an organization that has continued to teach, celebrate, and explore the art and tradition of oral storytelling.

Over the years (since 1979) many hundreds of people have taken workshops at Storytelling Toronto, and many thousands of have come to the annual Toronto Storytelling Festival to enjoy stories told by local, national, and international storytellers. From experienced, seasoned elders to young tellers experimenting with the nature of spoken narrative, Storytelling Toronto is a creative centre for story-lovers who share a passion for and a vision of storytelling as an transformative art in contemporary life.

Storytelling Toronto continues to run the annual festival and courses for adults. It also produces a weekly StoryTent at The Stop Farmer’s Market at Artscape Wychwood Barns, concert series StoryFusion Cabaret!, a resource library, and regular e-newsletters for a community that includes well over a thousand storytellers, story-listeners, teachers, librarians, theatre artists, writers, parents, and others.
