Thread Name: Folklore: Favorite Storytellers?
Subject: RE: Folklore: Favorite Storytellers?
Two favorites of mine:

DC-area's Bill Mayhew, whose stories include humorous folktales, Beowulf, and ethnic stories. Bill can be found just about everywhere in the DC area, including the Washington Folk Festival, the Potomac Celtic Festival, the Maryland Faerie Festival, and SF-lit convention Balticon.

Michigander Mark Bernstein, who I know from the SF filk community and is both an excellent songwriter and storyteller. He has an audio tape of storytelling and poetry, "Tusks Are Optional". According to the one weblink I found, it's available for $10 plus $2 shipping/handling, from Thegamut Publishing, P.O. Box 2742, Ann Arbor, MI 48106.
