Howard Kaplan

I am an occasionally performing songwriter who has found a comfortable home for my work among the storytelling community. I have been active in that community since the start of the current millennium, although I was already an active songwriter for about twenty years before that. Many of my songs are narrative, some of those being retellings of historic events and some others being reinterpretations of ballads or traditional tales.

I served for about eight years as the Secretary of 1001 Friday Nights of Storytelling in Toronto, where I also was and still am in charge of our sound amplification system.

Given my advancing age, I have decided to transition from obscure to semi-retired without ever passing through famous.

I have a web site at, and there are a few of my songs available as audio files on Soundcloud.
