On this special Halloween Night, Clary Croft will present “Halloween Hauntings – Supernatural Folklore in Nova Scotia”
Clary Croft is cited in The Encyclopedia of Music in Canada for his contribution to Maritime folklore and his ongoing research into the traditional music of the Maritime provinces. His career encompasses television, stage, film, radio, recordings and publications. From Symphony Nova Scotia to Sesame Street, Clary’s work has taken him across Canada, the United States, Europe and Japan. His own recordings showcase his love of the traditional music of the Maritimes. Several of his own compositions have been recorded and performed by others and his song, Still the Song Lives On, is so far the title song on four different CDs. An accomplished author, Clary has published several books which made the Nova Scotia best seller’s list, including: Helen Creighton: Canada’s First Lady of Folklore and Witchcraft: Tales, Beliefs and Superstitions from the Maritimes. The Halifax Mail Star wrote -“... he is the acknowledged master of one of the richest repertoires in Canada.”
