Yvonne Healy is a born storyteller... when she talks the wind forgets to blow and kids forget to watch TV! This award-winning raconteur was born across the water. She grew up with Irish stories and language on an American Main Street. Rollicking kids' tales, weird Celtic legends, outrageous family lore, or thought-provoking adult fare: whether it's blarney or beyond, this American and Irish storyteller opens windows to life, as real and touching as it gets. Funny, too! Good-hearted and giddy adaptations of world folklore are spiced with the Irish love of language, inspired by the antics of her outrageous family, and flavored with audience participation. "Yvonne Healy shares her stories with a clear, pure voice that is full of wonder and animation." - Hearsay Magazine, Connecticut Storytelling Center AWARDS •Gold Medal, Best DVD of the Year, Creative Child Magazine. 2006 •Storyteller of the Year, finalist, 2004 •Gold Medal, America's Story Festival, Tennessee, 2003. •Gold Medal, Best Spoken Word Recording, Children's Music Organization, 2003 •Gold Medal, Best Audio Children's Storytelling Resource, National Parenting Publications Assoc. 2002 CAREER HIGHLIGHTS •National Storytelling Fringe, PA •Chicago Cultural Center, IL •Plymouth Art Garden, United Kingdom •International Reading Conference, Canada •Detroit Institute of Arts, MI •Gualala Arts Center, CA •Minnesota Fringe, MN.
