More Words of Praise for Andy Davis, Storyteller

"Andy Davis is a storyteller of remarkable guile and wit. Andy has a straight-faced, straight-forward, seemingly innocent way of delivering the most outlandish tales I've ever heard. He's three-quarters of the way through it when I realize I've been had! Again! Why do I keep falling for this? Because he's so good at charming his audience and making us groan with recognition and laugh at ourselves. That's what the teller of a good story does. Andy is one of the best."
--Joanne Piazzi, storyteller and host of the
'Storytelling in the Pantry' series, Rochester, New Hampshire

“Andy Davis…entranced those who braved the rain and wind with a
variety of stories and poems from Ireland and Scotland. Andy used verbal dexterity, delightful turns of phrase, and physicality to illustrate the stories, at one point even standing on his head! I was engaged and entertained for the entire performance, and would gladly ask Andy to come back and perform for Seanachie Nights again.”
--Lynne Cullen. Producer, Seanachie Nights Storytelling Series, Portland, Maine

“I am so glad I came, it was lovely to see you perform. I thought you were great; I love your style of magic realism, the personal and the fantastic. Dali, Garcia Marquez and the short story writer Toure, kept coming to mind. Your stories are very literary as well.”
--Caraid O’Brien, playwright, actor, translator, Hingham, Massachusetts

“What! Didn't quite catch that because your English isn't good enough?
Just look! Yes, it does look like a withering tree. A gander? Have no
fear. You'll figure it out eventually. Just LOOK at Andy Davis!
The words are there. But so is the rest.......These are the words of wisdom I dispensed to my students in Paris before Andy Davis's remarkable storytelling presentation on January 11 2006. The smiles, smirks, laughs and chuckles I later heard from them during the presentation were far more telling than words. Thank you Andy.”
—Florence Mayo-Quenette, English faculty, Ecole Nationale Superière de Techniques Avancees (ENSTA), Paris, France

“Andy Davis tells delightful stories. Unexpected things happen in them in charming ways. Our patients enjoyed him very much.”
–Joan Benjamin Farren, Senior Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, Youville Hospital and Rehabilitation Center, Cambridge, Massachusetts

“Thank you so much for helping make our open house a success! I got so many comments about how much everyone enjoyed your storytelling.”
--Carrie Costello, Believe in Books Literacy Foundation, Intervale, New Hampshire

“Andy Davis tells stories with humor and enthusiasm. His love of this ancient art is infectious.”
--Olga Morrill, children’s librarian and storyteller, Conway (NH) Public Library

“Andy Davis is a truly amazing storyteller. He tells his stories with such enthusiasm and changes his voice for every character. I love the way he pauses at points to make the story more suspenseful. It is great how he fills you in on some things, such as words and their meanings (if he uses another language in the story) and a little bit of information about the story, before he begins. Mr. Davis tells the story in such a way that it drags you into the story and makes you feel like you are really there. It was a great experience, and very fun, too!”
--Carolyn Obery, Grade 7, Greely Middle School, Cumberland Center, Maine

“Andy Davis' storytelling had my students - and me - hanging on his every word! They were able to make great connections to their social studies learning while enjoying a wonderful performance!”
--Anne Catherine Ervin, Grade 7 Humanities Teacher,
Greely Middle School, Cumberland Center, Maine

“Andy, I want to thank you for coming to the La Mesa Library. We enjoyed your stories greatly! It was a joy to see the faces of the children as they listened to your stories because you could see them imagining what you described. Also, the teens in the audience enjoyed the program, which is always an accomplishment! Your program was a great way to start the holiday season.”
--Anna Hartman, Children’s Librarian, La Mesa (California) Library

Hey Andy,

I was just telling folks about you and Andrea and that magical place up there. An old friend, Terry Dugan said she just missed seeing me up there! I guess she is a regular at World Fellowship. I haven't seen her in 15 years!

Be well,

Bob

Good to see your happy mug shot. Hope all is as good in the northeast as it is in central Illinois.
