Spencer Bohren, Storyteller
In 2011 Storytelling came to Spencer Bohren with two invitations. One was to the Cave Run Storytelling Festival in Morehead, Kentucky, and the second was to the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee. Not that storytelling was new to him. Spencer has long been known for the stories he tells at concerts as background to his songs and the historical instruments he plays. In fact, audience members often request specific stories. In addition, Spencer developed a history of American music, told as a story punctuated with the evolution of a single song. Word reached the festival offices, and there he was, placing his stories center-stage for new audiences.
The reception was warm, and Spencer found himself loving the new venues and the people both in front of and behind the stages.
And so we are pleased to present Spencer Bohren, Storyteller, available for festivals and other storytelling events.
