LANES News: Charlot Lucien Will Be at STF 2017


Charlot Lucien – gifted Haitian storyteller, poet, and painter – will be the final concert performer at Sharing the Fire 2017. We are thrilled that so many storytellers and story-lovers will have the chance to experience his work!

Charlot is known for his rich tellings of both traditional and personal stories inspired by his native land of Haiti.  His warm baritone voice draws the listener in.  His sense of timing, humor, and knack for creating authentic character voices have made him one of the top Haitian tellers in the Northeast.  His program at Sharing the Fire will weave together art (his own paintings and those of other Haitian artists), folktales, and tales of his own experiences.

The Haitian Roundtable has just named Charlot to the 1804 List of Haitian-American Changemakers and Ones to Watch, a list that annually recognizes 30 Haitian-Americans who have demonstrated outstanding achievement and success in their profession, have been proven forces for change, and have helped to create a better understanding of Haiti and the Haitian community.  We are honored to have Charlot as the featured final performer at our conference on Sunday afternoon, March 26, 2017.

Sharing the Fire: The Northeast Storytelling Conference will take place at Hotel 1620 in Plymouth, MA, from March 24-26, 2017.  For more information about the conference, see http://lanes.org/storytelling-conference/sharing-the-fire/.
