GUEST,Dan Keding Help: Mudcat Storytellers Step Forward (31) RE: Help: Mudcat Storytellers Step Forward 21 Mar 00


The listserve for storytelling, Storytell is great fun with an awful lot of great folks wj\ho love story. Sorry I didn't give the whole address. here it is: to subscrbe send an email to listserv@venus.twu.edu - in the body of the message put Subscribe Storytell and your name. Nothing in the subject line. The National Storytelling Network's home page is www.storynet.org.

I've been using music with my stories for over twenty years. I also have been taking some of the old ballads and reworknig them into spoken narratives. These great old ballads have some wonderful story lines that need only a little work to make them incredible spoken tales. I usually only work with lesser known pieces since there is a part of me that loves the old tunes so much I can't leave them behind. I just worked on The Famous Flower of Serving Men using both the sung ballad and a narrative piece to come up with a new story. Heather Forest is a superb example of someone who uses music in her stories. I'm off to Texas tomorrow but when I get back maybe we can post a few stories and start a thread on the tales from Mudcat. Thanks so much for all the great news on this thread. Praise you opened a wonderful can of worms!!! My only problem with the Mudcat is wanting to me everyone once I've "talked" on the Cat with them. Someday. Take care my friends, Dan
