I'm a lover of stories - both telling and listening. I mainly tell Irish traditional tales, often with harp accompaniment, and I love to get people singing!

turned into a hawk???? Are you having troubles with a wizard? ?????? Sounds like there is a story there. When resume human form - do tell? Unless you are a hawk who types? Did you read about Patrick Ball playing at Bull Feeny's Portland on MON? Are you going?

Kate thanks for such a great show in Portland at Seanachie Nights!

Sorry I did not see you after but our cousins from Colorado wanted to get back to their RV. However they had a blast .Bill was singing to all your songs and smiled at every tale.

When Bill first arrived he tried to give me storytelling advice telling me to be dynamic to draw in folks that thought storytelling was boring.

He did not have a clue so he got a personal home concert on the spot. I then introduced him to a many of my storytelling peers explaining their styles and talents.
He has since agreed that there is variety in telling and folks just don't know what they do not know! LOL

Thanks for making another convert one story skeptic at a time.

Learnin' Vernon

Also I love the way you intersperse Gaelic and harp into your performance exposing folks to the whole of Irish culture.

Kate, i am glad you are my friend. I am having lots of trouble managing this Massmou th thing. Andrea Lovett is helping me, but I am not feeling good about it. Out in LA feeling kind of out of touch. You have a gig Thursday night next week don't you? Maybe I will try to go. How was Portland? Libby

Hi there Kate! It's so good to hear from you. It's been a wonderful busy summer full of storytelling, I am having a fantastic time! Right now I am working on transferring some video recordings of a bunch of us telling at Toscanini's in Central Square this past Monday evening; as soon as I figure it out, I'll post it to my page and let you know. Maybe next time you can join us!

Hi Kate - So glad you are here. Having your work nearby will be inspiring to all of us.
Ciao for now,
Say - what is the Irish equivalent of the Italian "ciao" which is used like the Hebrew "shalom" or Spanish ¡ Hola! but actually means " I am your slave/ servant." schiavo = slave.
