Brigadoon Reborn Ch. 3f: Cool Down (Layne Gneiting)



"Stop." My amble down the center of Main Street slowed considerably. "Stop." The impression hit me stronger. So I stopped. All weekend long these impressions had led me to new friends, and a journey into myself. "Look around." Did I have to stay in the middle of the street? There’s a bench right over there. I’ll just sit there and drink in this experience. "Stay here. If you move, you’ll lose the experience." Unwilling to offend this silent guide who had led… Continue

Brigadoon Reborn Ch. 3d: Performance of Antiquity (Layne Gneiting)

Toby Keith's declaration has been echoed with deafening tones in the storytelling world. "I wanna talk about me!" I remember sitting with a revered teller, seeking his advice, and seeing him shudder. "Why does an audience need to hear about my life? Why on earth would they want to hear about little old me? I'm a classicist, Layne. I want to tell them a story, not a life sketch."

Forgive my own bits of self-indulgence. When re-reading these dissertation entries I've cringed, wondering… Continue

Brigadoon Reborn Ch. 3c: Socialization of Apparel (Layne Gneiting)

Having not returned to Jonesborough for a number of years I wonder if the observations of apparel hold constant or if they've altered a bit. In any case, here's the next installment. Enjoy!


Walking across the festival grounds, one can easily identify members of the storytelling community by what they wear. Newcomers to the festival stick out, in part, by their choice of clothing. Apparel feeds into the festival in two distinct ways. First, apparel… Continue

Shout Out: 20th Anniversary Edition of the Talk Story Festival in Hawaii.

Thought is was worth mentioning that this weekend Jeff Gere is directing the 20th Anniversary Edition of the "Talk Story Festival" in Honolulu! I had the honor of being a featured teller with the TSF last year.

The TSF is an amazing event, one that has come up in a very organic process of "what works" instead of "what can we copy from other festivals." See the latest update/schedule for this weekend at:…

Sharing this unique time with you....Dussehra

Today( 30th Sept.) marks the beginning of 10 days of celebrations for Hindus in India called Dussera. It overlaps with the Muslim festivities and austerities in the same holy month, called Ramzan.

Every festival in India is associated with a story! That is the uniqueness of our collectivistic culture. Every festival is a reason for us to socialise, with neighbours with family and with friends. There is more, every region will have a different story to tell for the same festivities!! Some… Continue
