About the tellers:
Award-winning storyteller Anne Rutherford grew up in a house between a graveyard and a cow pasture which explains a lot. She delights audiences nationwide with funny, moving performances that include tales of personal adventure, Pacific Northwest folklore and prize-winning tall tales. However, she is also five-time first place winner of the Northwest Folklife Liar’s Contest, so don’t believe everything she tells you. She is currently telling stories over the ether hither and yon — find out more about her virtual shows at www.annerutherford.com
Whether he admits it or not, Eric Foxman would rather be telling or listening to stories than just about anything - with one notable exception. Over many years, he has learned that stories feed the soul with a delight and satisfaction that is only equaled by the slow flavorful enjoyment of a mouthful of melting dark chocolate that has gone through a long process of conching. Similarly, Eric has learned stories also need to be “conched” to be told to best effect.
