Trobairitz Music and Storytelling

ideally suited performances for all occasions

Welcome to Trobairitz

Trobairitz Music and Storytelling is a modern day expression of the trobairitz, who performed music, told stories and also blended the two to create an enchanting experience.

People of all ages will be captivated by the many faceted performance and mastery of the lever harp of the featured performer Angelica Ottewill. The program includes lively participatory stories, humorous tales and exciting romantic epics. Stories range from Medieval to international folk tales, and the music from celtic to contemporary.

Performances can be selected to include one or more musicians and/or storytellers. Our repertoire includes Celtic, popular, sacred, classical and original material as well as Christmas music. Our music is perfect for weddings, funerals, and other celebrations and events.

Angelica Ottewill’s expertise as a professional storyteller has led her to create musical renditions of many folk tales, Christmas stories, and religious subjects. The combination of harp, flute, voice and story make a wonderful contribution to special events, such as St. Patrick’s Day, Robbie Burns Day, Christmas parties, Birthdays, and other functions where entertainment is requested.

Educational programs for schools are also available that meet the curriculum requirements for Ontario.

Enhance your next event, be it a wedding, birthday, celebration or fundraiser with appropriate music and/or storytelling.
