Hey Jonatha, It is great to see you... pun intended. My next performance is on March 21 at the Northern Kentucky Storytelling Festival at the Kenton County Public Library, Erlanger, Kentucky. I open that night for Bil Lepp and the next day I am in Calhoun County, Western Kentucky. Then I go back to Erlanger on April 19 to open for Bill Harley. In May, the Board Members of the KSA are kicking off the Polk Salit Days, with a concert in Harlan County, the night before our Board Meeting. It should be a lot of fun and a fund raiser for the KSA. Oh yes, and this weekend I tell, "Mordecai" three times. Once on Saturday night and twice Sunday Morning, that should be cute too. I will be sending you some notes about Tandem Telling... if you still want them for your book. Do you?
Glad you had a good turnout at the library. We were in the snow, ice, and cold as we traveled to the Eco Storytellers Retreat at Shaw Nature Preserve near St. Louis. But it was worth it! What a great time we had. So much networking, and superb stories.
Now I am ready to think Spring stories! Let us hope nature agrees. Jonatha
Thanks for your comment. The weather here has been rough as well. I did a program for the local library and it was bitterly cold. We did have an excellent turn out though with many foks I had never met.
Thanks again! and thank you for the tandem info. I am so pleased to be more intergenerational in the articles in my tandem book. I have seen how terrific your generation of tellers is, bringing in new ideas and styles. Any comprehensive book on any storytelling topic would be incomplete without you! Jonatha
I have been to your site before when I started compiling a list of tandem tellers. One of my projects for my masters is on tandem telling. I would love to talk to you about how you tell in tandem and any other tidbits you can spare for my research project.
