Hello from Normal, IL - I ran into one of the students from your storytelling master's degree program in Taiwan. What fun to meet someone half way around the world who is learning to tell tales. I felt badly that I was only able to talk with her for a few seconds and do not recall her name. (I was giving a workshop for students in Yunlin in a storytelling class at the university.) Your influence in sharing stories has gone far! Mike
Hi there! I found this site when I was looking for anything new you had been doing with your life and music...so, here I am a member. Will you be my friend?...Ah.... I have a gig at a place called the Muddy Cup here in Saugerties. Every Saturday I play with all my colors/stories. When the evening comes here they have lots and lots of music. Reminds me of the last time I saw you at that Pub in JC. People are all going back to acoustic music and I love it. My best to ETSU! Maggie
Take a look at the new Group that I created. It is called International Storytelling. My vision is that this will develop into a good exchange. I have reviewed many of the last Storytelling Magazine artilces and have thought about the number of tellers who are going to other places and realize that this is a large component of storytelling and we should be sharing our insights.
I haven't had a chance to sit down and have a cup of coffee with you yet, but this is a begining. Dianne just added a new feature, a calendar, so now when I'm on the road I can click and see what's going on accross the country.
You might consider joining the group "all the fringe that's fit to print". I look forward to reading your comments.
Hi Joseph. It's good to have you on this site. I've enjoyed it. Would you consider joining the group Applied Storytelling: the Power of Story? Partcipate in the discussions and start some of your own. I know we would all gain from your wisdom and insights. Best wishes to you. STEVE
I enjoyed your presentations at the WV Storytelling Institute very much. The Jack Tales session needed to be at least 3 hours long--an hour seemed like it just scraped the surface. Than you for sharing your beautiful voice on Barbara Ellen with us.
I enjoyed reading about your cittern playing. I play a number of related instruments tuned in fifths such as a tenor banjo tuned FCGDA and a guitar tuned CGDAEB. I'll bet your harp guitar is very useful in accompanying stories.
