Proceeds benefit Bayard Taylor Library
EAST MARLBOROUGH — In 2009 three, award-winning, nationally touring performers, decided to come together and create, The Uncalled for Trio. Their first year of touring resulted in sold-out concerts around the country.
The trio will be displaying their unique wit, Saturday night at 7 p.m. at Unionville Elementary School as part of a special fund-raising event for the Bayard Taylor Library.
Since the first year of touring went so well, the trio decided to expand their offerings to include special holiday shows and workshops. Their Christmas shows sold out and their workshops were filled to capacity. And so, they continue on. Touching the heart and tickling the funny bone, all through the art of storytelling and music!
The Unionville tour stop takes a little bit of the sting out of the fact that the much anticipated 7th Annual Lower Brandywine Storytelling Festival, originally scheduled for this weekend, has been moved to June 2013, because of the need for a bigger venue. Complete details on that event are expected to be available in early 2013.
