Event Details


  • Sat. Oct. 8 from 1pm-5pm Storytelling through Song for Adults
  • Sun. Oct. 9 from 10am-2pm Storytelling through Song for Youth ages 12-18

 Lindsay Kyte is a playwright and performer known for her ability to weave words in, around, and through the journey of a song. Her plays have been performed across the country, and Kyte herself has sung with them, including DEAR RITA, which premiered at the Charlottetown Festival in 2021 and is at the Savoy Theatre in Glace Bay Sept. 28 – Oct 1, 2022!

Yet Kyte credits her musical storytelling ability to some very special training. Kyte has a Masters of Theatre from England’s Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA), founded by Paul McCartney, who gave Kyte her degree! As you can imagine from being founded by a Beatle, LIPA was focused on finding the story in a song in order to create a deep personal connection and a journey that will mesmerize an audience — before you even sing a note!

 In this workshop, Kyte will offer LIPA’s tools and techniques for finding your way into a song from a storytelling perspective — what is the song about? Who are you singing to? How do you break it down and label the sections? How do you make the most of each word and sound? What is your obstacle? Where is the “turning point” in the song’s narrative? EVERY song has a story, no matter its genre. Heavy metal? Pop? Country? Yep. There’s a story. We’re here to find it.

Don’t sing? No problem. You won’t have to in this workshop! This is about creating the story using the lyrics and the music, like being a detective finding clues about what the songwriter and composer have given us on the page. Bring your favourite song in and we’ll work through it together. And if you do want to perform it, we’re here to listen! This workshop is for performers, songwriters, and those simply curious!


Space is limited. Pre-registration is required.
