This week, we are starting a whole new theme - Performers! And our first category will be SCA.
What Is It:
There are many different types of performers. In the SCA, most performers are called "bards" (though I know a few who really *hate* that term).
But they don't all sing or write poetry. There are occasional tumblers, some jugglers, a few who breathe fire.
And then there are the storytellers.
This week's featured listing is True Thomas the Storyteller.
There are people who tell stories, and then... there are Storytellers. True Thomas is one of the latter.
He is an artist who has dedicated his career to learning how to tell a story, how to capture your attention - and keep it. He knows how to research a story, craft a story, and tell the story. He is a Professional Storyteller.
Although he does perform at SCA events, he also does this many other places. He is invited to corporate retreats, kids' camps, Christmas parties (yes, he's a professional Santa, as well - see SantaTrue.com for that), festivals, and libraries.
I guess, maybe I should have put him in the Sundry category. In addition to his Medieval persona, he also has Wild West, Steampunk, science fiction and many other personae to use in his performances.
True Thomas has made it his mission to tell stories, and he's become a master. Consider booking him for your next event or party to make it something truly special!
