David MacCaffrey: The Shannachie of Glendunbunn Ballybegg – An Evening of Celtic Storytelling

December 17
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The wit and wisdom, humor and horror, and hubris and humanity of a people are found in their traditional stories.  Compelling storyteller David Emerson retells (and embroiders) the colorful and ancient tales of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Cornwall in a presentation that will “warm, tickle, or chill the heart.”

David Emerson’s lifelong career as a living history interpreter includes Colonial Williamsburg, Plimoth Plantation, Morristown National Historical Park, and The Old Barracks Museum, where he has played a range of characters. He is also one of the premier George Washington interpreters in New Jersey.  David has performed for hundreds of museums, libraries, historical societies, festivals, schools, and community organizations throughout the Northeast. His stories are appropriate for adults, teens, and adolescents.

History on the Hoof (David Emerson and Stacy Roth) is a company specializing in unique presentations on themes in American History from two veteran historical interpreters who combine scholarship with a variety of interpretive techniques, including storytelling, songs, demonstration, and drama.
