      Jeannine Laverty and Ed Lowman make a great team! Jeannine's choice of stories and her passionate delivery make the tales come alive. Ed's gentle touch on the strings added greatly to the mood. Ed's occasional solos were a welcome bonus. A delightful evening!

Jeannine Laverty has been telling international folk tales since 1979 when her work teaching English as a second language to immigrants in New York City showed her firsthand how the U.S. is made up of cultures from all the countries of the world.

Laverty has taught weekend workshops in storytelling for adults at Sagamore and other Adirondack sites since 1980. This work has led to her love of telling stories from Adirondack writers. She also performs as part of the storytelling ensemble, SweetLand Storytellers.
