Daniel Bishop, the Storyteller. Let's tell some Stories!

Profile Information

Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
Daniel Bishop, the Storyteller loves stories of all kinds. Whether he’s spooking campers around a fire, spinning a yarn of the high seas, telling a tale of magic or mayhem, or expounding on a story of self discovery, he’s always expressing his passion for the oldest of all entertainments – the story.

Daniel shares this passion around the region at festivals, schools, resorts, libraries, private residences, and more. Choose a pre-prepared show, or work with Daniel to build your own. With a menu of campfire, ghost, children’s, and personal stories as well as folklore and legends, fairy tales with flair, and histories he’s sure to have stories for every age and every occasion. Each show can be tailored for your event, and Daniel is eager to learn a new story at your request.

He is always on the hunt for a new story to tell and a new way to tell it. When he tells, a little of that excitement is bound to rub off on the most jaded listener (even teenagers). Using only voice and gesture, Daniel draws upon his training in theatre at Utah State University to captivate the imagination. He aims to magically transport audiences back to a simpler day when special effects weren’t needed to make them feel a part of a story.

If you long for those by-gone days of swapping tales around the campfire, let Daniel bring that campfire feeling to an event near you.

Hi Daniel, you asked for a UK website for storytellers - it depends what kind of site you're after. My Storytelling Resources site is UK - - and has a lot for storytellers here and worldwide. If you're looking for a professional body, the the Society for  Storytelling is the main one - and links to various local groups. Is that any use?

Oh, Daniel, the puns possible with that bakery's name!  O.k., now that Ning seems to have finished its maintenance, it's good to know you're not telling tomorrow.  I'll look a bit and trust others are thinking also.  Just like good bread dough, let's see what rises up.

You can buy downloads of my ghost stories on CD Baby, Daniel, but I have not uploaded any to YouTube or elsewhere. There are two ppodcasts with me that you can access on my blog, however, at on the right sidebar for the links.

Thanks for asking!

Hi Daniel,

Sorry for the delay in responding - been on the road. I would like to know more about what you'd like to use for the pilot (if it's not too late), what your show is about etc. I'm happy to be a part of it as long as I can make it work with my schedule. So, send more details. you might want to communicate via email with my wife/business manager Debbie Block as she's good with details...her email is I'll let her know. Best to you.

Hi Daniel

I sent them to your email. Thees thyme fer shoor. (I hope) Let me know about the Water Kelpie it drops below the range in a spot, but there is an easy fix that fits in the chord structure.

hi Daniel

I'll scan them and try to have them to you within the hour.

Hi Daniel

I'll try to scan a jpg of the fingering chart.

Hi Daniel

I've got the finale files on my hardrive as we speak and could email them if you have a reader or program for them.

At 1:36pm on March 3, 2010, David S. Sharp said…
Hi Daniel

Do you have a mailing address to send them to?

At 2:36am on March 3, 2010, Dianne de Las Casas, Founder said…

Unfortunately, Ning doesn't allow that kind of select messaging. There is no way to categorize the storytellers by state or country. You can send a message to all of your friends and you can message all the members of a group you are a member of. Any storytelling guild or statewide organization can set up a group to notify members of events and news. Best wishes!
