Angela Davis, who calls herself “the Yarnspinner,” is the International Storytelling Ambassador and shares stories from her native Louisiana roots. She has performed in over 50 countries and continues to be in demand for festivals, conferences, schools, etc. According to her bio, she travels to tell her stories to “help make the world a better place.”
Rick Davis, who was born and raised in Woodville, and is now an Austin resident, “welcomes storytelling as a friendly alternative to truth,” according to his bio. He performs many old favorite traditional tales, from chilling ghost stories to humor-filled “Jack Tales,” in addition to his own original stories, which chronicle his childhood in East Texas.
