Synopsis - Pulse
Blending viola, voice, movement, animation and storytelling, Pulse weaves together Campbell’s own coming-of-age story, where profound encounters with music and love change the course of her life. It tells the true story of how she finally found her musical 'pulse'. After frustrating and funny detours to music college and Mexican orchestras, Campbell makes a visit to Cape Breton which sends her home with a spring in her step. Pulse has been supported by Creative Scotland; it premiered in Celtic Connections Festival and was part of the Made in Scotland showcase 2016. Mairi has appeared at Celtic Colours.

Dartmouth Book ExchangeSpooky Tales by Storytellers Cindy Campbell-Stone & Steve Vernon
Join Dartmouth Book Exchange for a Night of Spooky Tales told by Professional Storyteller Cindy Campbell-Stone, liaison of the Helen Creighton Folklore Society. The first 20 people to register will be guaranteed a seat- after that it is standing room only. To register just call, e-mail, message or visit the store.
All advanced registrants will be entered into a draw to win a copy of Bluenose Ghosts donated by the Helen Creighton Folklore Society.
**Winner of the draw must be present to win.
***This event is appropriate for children 10+, but they must be accompanied by an adult, as it is not for the faint of heart.
NEW: Steve Vernon will be joining Cindy in telling some of Nova Scotia's Spooky Tales. He will be bringing a selection of his books for purchase & signing after the event.
Brand new copies of the 2nd ed. Bluenose Ghosts in Trade Paperback will be for sale at the event. There will also be a limited amount of used paperback copies.
Ghosts guarding buried treasure, phantom ships, haunted houses and supernatural warnings of death—these are just some of the strange and mysterious phenomena that you will encounter in Bluenose Ghosts. These unexplained mysteries are all the more chilling because they are based on personal experiences of ordinary people, told to Helen Creighton, one of Canada’s most respected and renowned folklorists, over a period of thirty years. So when the moon is full and the wind is howling, be prepared to be spooked by apparitions and things that go bump in the night.
