It’s true. She does stories. And, she tells ‘em so often and so wild that KBCS 91.3.FM radio grabbed her up as a story tellin’ personality. We did too, enlisting her as emcee, mistress of ceremonies, performer extraordinaire, for Bainbridge Bluegrass Festival 2013.
Call her the Prairie Home Companion, Garrison Keillor, Island woman with a voice.
She’s every bit as expressive as Keillor, but SOUTH of the Mason-Dixon line, if you please. She weaves dreams and heart and adventure, on-stage, catapulting her audience into laughter and tears and awe moments. She’s all that and more.
Auntamama ruminates about Blue Ridge Mountains at dusk, rolling and misted sweet. Her stories are conversations with memory that leap into what you and I transgress now, 2013. As Seattle’s Entertainment reviewer once said, Auntmama whips up silver, spit-shined tales.”
Auntmama tells stories throughout the Northwest and can be heard at a Guide to Visitors, The Bent Institute, Seattle StoryTeller’s Guild, Second Tuesday Poet’s and Writers, Northwest Folklife, Pegasus Coffee Shop and on the last Thursday of EVERY month, she exchanges with her friends at Seattle’s Madison Avenue Starbucks.
