Beloved folklorist, storyteller, and performer spins the tale of his fifty-year career in the arts in Nova Scotia, featuring The Privateers, Helen Creighton, and more.

"I have led a charmed life. I know that, and I am grateful every day."— Clary Croft

Folklorist, recording artist, actor, songwriter, broadcaster, storyteller, author, archivist, artisan, and designer: over a career spanning more than fifty years, Clary Croft has woven the threads of his vast array of talents into a tapestry that has enveloped the life of an artist, and in the process he's become a household name in Nova Scotia and beyond.

With charming humility and cheeky humour, Clary shares memories and anecdotes of an eclectic career including his work with The Privateers, Sherbrooke Village, Singalong Jubilee, Neptune Theatre, CBC Mainstreet and, perhaps most importantly, his collaboration with eminent folklorist Helen Creighton.

Featuring a foreword by writer, broadcaster, and former co-host of CBC's Singalong Jubilee Jim Bennet, and with dozens of images in both colour and black and white, Clary Croft: My Charmed Life in Music, Art, and Folklore is an inspiring and entertaining chronicle of a creative life well lived.

Clary Croft is a folklorist, writer, and entertainer. He is the author of several books, including Witchcraft, Helen Creighton: Canada's First Lady of Folklore, A Maritimer's Miscellany, and Celebrate: The History and Folklore of Holidays in Nova Scotia. Clary lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
