Don White’s talents are many: storyteller, folk singer-songwriter, author, humorist, and teacher. His career has spanned more than 25 years. White has been featured at storytelling festivals across the nation, including the National Storytelling Festival in 2015. He has shared the stage with many great talents including Bill Morrisey, Christine Lavin, and Jeff Dunham. White has released an impressive collection of books, CDs, and DVDs.
His family spent three years hitchhiking across the nation, and years of watching and performing with comedy and folk greats have provided fodder for songs and tales for audiences of all ages. He combines life experiences from his years as a hitchhiker and his role as father and husband with a stand-up comic’s wit. To top it off, White sets it all to a folk-themed series of tunes.
Kevin Kling is an internationally accomplished storyteller and playwright who is well-known for his commentaries on National Public Radio’s (NPR’s) All Things Considered. Living with a congenital birth defect and having survived a near-fatal motorcycle accident has given Kling a unique perspective. When crafting performances, he draws on abilities developed while earning his Bachelor of Arts in theater along with these remarkable life experiences.
On his website, Kevin Kling is described as an “author, playwright, [and] teller of tales” and he has had great success in all three endeavors. Regardless of the vehicle, Kling gets his messages across in ways that leave audiences laughing, crying, learning, and wanting more—sometimes all in the same story.
