For more information about this program and other storytelling evenings contact the Corner House in Center Sandwich at 284-6219, or online at

Andy Davis got his start as a storyteller telling comic tales by candlelight in Mexican refugee camps 20 years ago. He has since broadened and refined his craft, and has entertained audiences as far east as Paris, as far south as Bamako, and as far west as San Diego.

Called one of the “120 best living English-speaking storytellers” by Mcfarland Press, Brooklyn-born Bob Reiser has been a featured teller at festivals from NYC to Vancouver. Bob’s repertoire includes original zany fables and personal tales of growing-up in Brooklyn - finding joy, pain and laughter in some of life’s most awkward and silly situations.

Colorful storyteller and author Lauretta Phillips' sense of humor and her delight in the story always makes for a fun and exciting evening. A storyteller since 1987, she writes most of the stories she tells and her repertoire includes folk takes, fairy tales, legends, urban tales, tall tales, small tales, cat tales, rat tales and just plain tales.

Hailing originally from the UK, storyteller Simon Brooks has been thrilling folks with traditional tales for almost 30 years. Traveling most places with his bodhràn, transfixing people with his voice, Simon gives folks an understanding of the magic inherent in a story powerfully told. Simon's telling can be funny and it can be poignant.

For over two decades NH Seacoast naturalist and storyteller Debra Ballou has been telling stories to audiences of all ages incorporating folktales, fairy tales, Native American stories, original stories, personal adventures, and poems. She often uses musical instruments, singing, and/or audience participation.
