A Rose for the Baby: More Supernatural Tales from Irish- and Scottish-American tradition in Western New York
Classic Irish and Scottish storytelling features witches, ghosts, curses, and the inimitable fairies. These figures still turn up in living accounts – and not just in the British Isles. Celtic tradition has crossed the Atlantic and rooted firmly in canal country in Western New York. Mason Winfield’s riveting storytelling performance A ROSE FOR THE BABY mixes traditional Celtic tales of love, enchantment, and destiny with remarkable local accounts of avenging ghosts, child-stealing Little People, and Old-World-style cursers.
