It’s been more than 25 years since my first visit to the Texas Storytelling Festival. On that visit I heard the amazing Charlotte Byrne who, although she has passed, remains my all-time favorite storyteller. Her rural tales of growing up were full of fun, wisdom, and laughter. She was what I wanted to be.
Alas one must make a living and I have spent the last quarter-century more as a ventriloquist than as a storyteller, but part of my heart is still in storytelling.
It was an honor then to be asked to tell at the Sacred Tales Concert for the 2015 Tejas Storytelling Festival
If you’ve never been to a storytelling festival, find one and go. You’ll never be sorry.
