ANTHONY BURCHER--References from Good Folks

 MILBRE BURCH, Acclaimed International Storyteller: "The playfulness of Anthony Burcher's delivery can belie the seriousness of some of his stories. His downhome, conversational style has a bit of the tall-tale teller or the medicine show barker in it. He brews up a tincture of tales that is story-medicine worth patenting."

 

 ANN BUXIE, LOS ANGELES STORY WORKS/LOS ANGELES STORYTELLING FESTIVAL BOARD MEMBER: "YOUR STORIES ARE SO WELL COMPOSED AND LEAD US THROUGH THE UPS AND DOWNS TO A CONCLUSION THAT BEARS THE FRUIT OF YOUR OWN PROFOUND EXPERIENCE. THEY ARE JEWELS. THEY COME FROM THE HEART AND TOUCH THAT CORD IN ALL OF US THAT YEARNS TO BE KNOWN AND HEARD.

    YOU DREW THEM WITH SUCH UNDERSTANDING, COMPASSION, AND HUMOR. THEY ARE ILLUMINATING. THEY HELP US GROW AND ARE INDELIBLE REMINDERS OF HOW TO VALUE THIS LIFE WE HAVE."

 

JUDITH ONESTY (Member-National Storytelling Network, Virginia Storytelling Alliance, Tell Tale Hearts Storytelling Theater): "YOU NEVER KNOW EXACTLY HOW ANTHONY'S STORIES WILL GO, BUT YOU CAN BE SURE THAT THEY WILL BE A WILD AND FUN RIDE."

 

HEATHER HOWER (Assistant Director Outreach Education & Special Services--Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation): "ANTHONY IS ONE OF THE MOST ENGAGING PRESENTERS I'VE EVER SEEN. HIS SENSE OF HUMOR WILL HAVE YOU ROLLING IN THE AISLES AND HIS UNIQUE FLAIR FOR CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT WILL KEEP YOU GUESSING."

 

LINDA GOODMAN (National Storytelling Network, Virginia Storytelling Alliance, LANES, VWC): "HE HAS AN ENGAGING PERFORMANCE STYLE THAT HOLDS AUDIENCES OF ALL AGES IN RAPT ATTENTION. HIS STORIES HONOR THOSE PRECIOUS MOMENTS THAT TAKE THE LISTENER BACK IN TIME TO A WORLD WHERE WONDER REIGNED."

 

REV. DR. BOB MELONE (Pastor, Mt. Vernon Presbyterian Church): "ANTHONY IS A PASSIONATE AND ENGAGING COMMUNICATOR, WHO IS ALWAYS PREPARED, EXTREMELY RELIABLE, AND DELIGHTFULLY ENTERTAINING."

 

RACHEL BEVINS (Family Programming Director, MARSCON-Science Fiction/Fantasy Convention): "ANTHONY IS A VERY LIVELY AND ENGAGING STORYTELLER. HE REALLY KNOWS HIS MATERIAL WELL!"

 

ANTHONY BURCHER (Member-Virginia Storytelling Alliance, The Williamsburg Weavers of the Word Storytelling Guild, Tell Tale Hearts Storytellers Theatre): "HE'S OKAY."
