CD RELEASE PARTY AT SOUNDS OF THE MOUNTAINS

Friends, I need to brag on the SOUNDS OF THE MOUNTAINS festival held here in VA! It always gets the best in storytelling, like this year with DONALD DAVIS, GERALDINE BUCKLEY, DOUG ELLIOT & KEVIN KLING, but this year it's also the home of a DEBUT Birthday PARTY for HE AIN'T RIGHT, my new CD which has been lovingly put together by the good folks at ROADCANDY RECORDS & TREEHOUSE ARTISTS.  Copies of my CD will be there along with copies of my…

Are your ears burning?  I'm at the FL StoryFest & in a workshop today your book was touted today as having "saved her bacon" by 1 of our featured tellers, Geraldine Buckley, talking about having to throw out the planned curriculum she had for a 4th grade.  Your book save the day for her.

We also "let the cat out of the bag" about how much we're looking forward to you at this summer's NSN Y.E.S! preconference.  Our chair, Jane Stenson, has been raving about you.

Buy this book, folks, and come see him this summer in VA.

I loved your book and that was a fun interview. Let everyone know I am featuring it on my page. Thanks for breaking the ice on my new show Storytellers Talk Story. I hope other storytellers will decide to be on my show. Julia

Yo Anthony,
I just want to say how delighted I was to hear you at the LA Festival. I returned thee after Christmas to see my folks (remember the potluck when you landed?)...dined with Ann Buxie, one of the LA Board Members, who thought the final concert was just spectacular! She said,"that was as good as any concert I've seen anywhere"... yep.

Hi, Anthony. Yeah, I was wondering about the hat, but then I forgot about it - a great sign for a storyteller! I had a great time and I really enjoyed myself in Norfolk, and it was great to have a new person enter into the storytelling world. Vicki, my friend, really liked it. Thanks again. Peace and belief,

Oh, by the way, did you get the information about Andy Offutt Irwin? Let me know if you didn't.

Hi, Anthony. Thanks for the welcome. I presently have nothing on my schedule for Sept. 10 so I will look to come to Weavers of the Word. I have the location, but didn't see the time - so what time is it? How long is it? What is the membership costs? Thanks for the info. Peace and belief,

Hi Anthony!
Thanks for the tip about the new center opening in Virginia, I will definitely check into it! Since we're sorta in the same area, for the moment, maybe I'll get a chance to run into you. Are you coming up to check out the storytelling at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival? I plan to go tomorrow and a few other days if I can make it.

Thanks for the welcome, Anthony. Yes, I do remember you and First Night Williamsburg. I'll be in New York the week of September 19th, telling at the Hans Christian Andersen statue in Central Park for starters.
