SONGS & STORIES 2017 FEATURING ANDY ORFUTT IRWIN
Legendary storyteller, showman and humorist, Andy Orfutt Irwin will be performing at the January 28, 2017 Songs & Stories hosted by The Craddock Center in Cherry Log, Ga. This is a free event, so bring a friend and arrive early! Seating is limited and doors open at 3 p.m. to the divine voice of Hannah From.
Known for his hilarious stories, whistling skills and, perhaps more than anything, the delightful character “Aunt Marguerite Van Camp”, Andy is a one-man artist extraordinaire. He describes himself as “equal parts mischievous schoolboy and the Marx Brothers, peppered with a touch of the Southern balladeer”.
Andy spent six years as a Featured Teller at the National Storytelling Festival. He has appeared ten times as Teller in Residence at the International Storytelling Center. Andy’s captivating talents have led him to be a Guest Artist at La Guardia High School of Art, Music, and Performing Arts in New York (The “FAME!” School), Keynote Speaker/Performer at the Library of Congress-Virburnum Foundation Conference on Family Literacy, Guest Writer/ Performer with the Georgia Tech Glee Club and a guest composer with the Amherst College Men’s Double Quartet. He was also Artist-In-Residence in Theatre at Emory University’s Oxford College from 1991 to 2007.
