Thanks for the kind words. Truth to tell, I don't know many leprechaun stories. But, you can't go wrong browsing through Irish Folk and Fairy Tales, ed. W. B. Yeats.
Yes, the WSSF was terrific. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
All the best,
I saw you at the Weber State Storytelling Festival and may I say thank you for the show. Both Story and Harp were wonderful.
I was just asked to do 3 shows on St. Patrick's day and, as you told a fun story about a long nosed woman, I was hoping you could turn me towards some good leprechaun stories.
Thanks again for your show and your help

We listened to your tape of Irish tunes of O'Carolan until it wore out,then we bought another. What a great gift of music it was! How nice to find you here. Will go listen to your stories now.
I agee with Tom... what a cool wegpage... I hope you will upload some audio and video here for us to enjoy. I also hope you will join serveral of the excellent groups and forums... dive right in.. the water is fine.
This is a most awesome site for a remarkable range of tellers from all over the globe. Your success as one of the "premier Celtic harp players in the world and a captivating spoken word artist," is, somehow, an encouragement to me - and, I suspect, to a number of others. And what a wonderful combination of 'th' tune and the tale.'
Perhaps I sense a bit of a connection - years ago I did a solo show on Woody Guthrie - again with the tunes and tales - and it was a major event in my life, as you well know from your own journey.
Please take advantage of this site to post some of your work - I would truly like to hear a bit of what you do. We have pages for Video, audiofiles, Photos, Discussions, Groups, etc. - share your stuff, create new fans!
I'm delighted that you've joined us, I wish you the very best, look forward to hearing/seeing you perform and, again, send warm greetings and my Welcome!
