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 early 1990s, although I was already an active songwriter for about ten 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.

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

I served for about eight years as the Secretary of 1001 Friday Nights of Storytelling in Toronto, and for an overlapping but not identical eight years I was in charge of our sound amplification system.

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