Andy Offutt Irwin is the second of two champion storytellers who will be coming to Rome, GA for the Big Fibbers Storytelling Festival.
“…peppered with a touch of the Southern balladeer. One of the most sought after performing storytellers in the United States, Andy is a perennial favorite of the Teller-in-Residence Program at the International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough, Tennessee, and he has been a Featured Teller at the National Storytelling Festival nine times (as of 2017).”—pirated from the website.
Andy and Bill Lepp (from yesterday’s post) will be featured at the opening night of the Big Fibbers Story Telling Festival. These two men will open your eyes to the art of storytelling—I guarantee it.
The two men will also split up and visit the students who have participated in the in-school storytelling workshops.
The kids are in for a total treat. I can only guess at what effect storytellers of this caliber would have had on a ten-year-old John Schulz.
