We welcome storytellers of all kinds. Whether you are a professional or a first-timer, if you've got a story to tell - we want to hear it! It doesn't matter if you are there to listen, to tell or to gather up your courage to tell a story, we’d love to see you.

Regrettably, the Crow's Nest is not wheelchair accessible.


About our host:

Beverley Kane was born in St.John's but has lived longer on the Southern Shore than the Big City. She met and married a fisherman from Renews who is steeped in the tradition of the place, and a little bit of it may have just rubbed off on her! She has spent the past 30 odd years reciting tales and songs gathered from house parties and local gatherings across homes and stages in Newfoundland. Bev was an actor for several seasons with the Southern Shore Folk Arts Council in Ferryland, spent eight years playing the Colony of Avalon's 17th-century kitchen, and is presently a Heritage Interpreter for Provincial Historic Sites. Her alter-ego, Mrs. Bridget Theresa O'Rielly O'toole, regales visitors with stories of the 1800s as the cook at the COmmissariat House; Bev can also be found reocunting the history of Port wine in Newfoundland at the Newman Wine Vaults.
