Rich Bolin is a retired preacher who was particularly inspired by a trip to Jonesborough and the National Storytelling Festival in 1998. He has been back to the festival just about every year since, as well as attending festivals all over the country and actively participating in the Westside Community Storytellers in Los Angeles. Now a resident of the Central Coast of California (Los Osos/Morro Bay/San Luis Obispo), Rich has been a weekly storyteller for preschoolers as well as performing in libraries and museums. He loves to tell folk tales and wisdom tales from many traditions ... stories that are funny and inspirational with the power to make connections across boundaries.
