  Suzi "Mama" Whaples as Teller-in-Residence at Storytelling Live!
State: Tennessee

Suzi Whaples’s tales are as authentically Appalachian as she is. With a totally unaffected dialect, lightning quick wit and a gentle demeanor, she blends Appalachian myth, legend and culture together with stories of her life, her family’s lives, and some even larger than life. Each intertwines the poignant, the encouraging, and the flat-out hilarious, whether she’s taking you to the ‘holler’ or the county fair.
With over 35 years of experience, Whaples has toured America as a teller, conference speaker, humorist, and teacher.
“Whaples brought a mixed bag of stories. Some were rib tickling, slice of life stories, while others were straight from the heart of her Appalachian culture. Her performance was as magical and unpredictable as the flight of a June bug.” – Troy Messenger

  The Sacred Alchemy Festival
State: Washington

This Festival calls many groups together--one of them being the Bards--to celebrate around campfires, in workshops, through music and dance and sharing of food. The following website will give you details for the festival: www.sacredalchemyfestival.com. We are also offering participants the opportunity to lead workshops on their specialties. If you are interested in providing a workshop, you will find the information at http://www.sacredalchemyfestival.com/workshops/.

Imagine traveling over the lands like the ancient Bards, following the life of the story. At Sacred Alchemy Festival, you can do just this. Follow your story and join the other Bards in one large, collective, living tale. This summer, in the county north of Bellingham, Washington, the Sacred Alchemy Festival brings together people of different talents--storytellers, drummers, conscious dancers, fire and belly dancers, fantasy performers, reenactment arts, healers, and primitive skills craftsmen--into one giant celebration. Each Ancient Tribe will camp around its own central fire, revel in its unique gifts, and share these gifts cross-tribally through workshops. On Saturday night we will dip into the ceremony of the ancient ways, presenting ourselves to King Oberon and Queen Tatiana, then share a potluck feast and dance around the bonfire long into the night!
