Tellers

Pat Dickson is the recipient of the 2019 Emerging Storyteller Award from Storytellers of Canada/Conteurs du Canada. Pat, a retired police officer, first came into storytelling as listener, then began telling stories as part of a monthly open mic forum of the Storytellers Circle of Halifax.

Steve Vernon is a storyteller and also an author of some of the most spine tingling, horror filled, ghost stories around town or in his imagination. He has many books on the subject and many scary tales to tell including material collected by Helen Creighton.

Singers and Tellers

Margo Carruthers a recipient of the 2019 Emerging Storyteller Award from the Storytellers Circle of Halifax. Margo has embraced storytelling as part of her performing talents as a singer of ballads, folksongs, and traditional Gaelic songs. She is co-host for the Helen Creighton Folklore Society’s open mic program, WTF:What the Folk!

Jay Perry is a performer who often combines the theatrical with sea chanteys and ghostly material collected by Helen Creighton. His blending of stories, songs, fact and folklore is unexpected and enthralling.

Roving Reporters

Cindy Campbell-Stone has been singing and telling ghost stories for over 25 years. She is also a roving reporter for SC-radio-CC and like, Dr Helen Creighton, loves to record people’s ghost stories or supernatural experiences. She is co-host for the Helen Creighton Folklore Society’s open mic program, WTF:What the Folk!

Emma Lang is one of three Folklore Reporters. She has a PhD in Folklore and has worked at several museums as an exhibit developer. She was immersed in folklore at an early age by her storytelling family. Emma enjoys collecting and recording oral history, as did, Helen Creighton.

Dylan Jewers is a member of The Big Turnips, a band who often records traditional or folk tunes. Recently, his interest in folk material has led him to follow in the footsteps of folklorist, Dr Helen Creighton, by recording the ghost stories or supernatural experiences of others. Dylan can often be found at the recording booth at the Dartmouth Heritage Museum/Evergreen House (Helen’s house).



Folklore Reporters collecting ghost stories, supernatural experiences and superstitions from the general public. The reporting/oral history collecting is a volunteer activity supported by SC-Radio-CC, a program of Storytellers of Canada-Conteurs du Canada.
