Michael Parent as Teller-in-Residence at the International Storytelling Center
October 27, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - October 31, 2015 @ 3:00 pm
From New England to New Zealand, Michael Parent has been telling stories and singing songs for over 30 years. A native Mainer of French-Canadian descent, he tells folk and original stories and sings a variety of songs, traditional and otherwise, in English and French. Featured at many events, including the International Storytelling Colloquium in Paris, the Glistening Waters Festival in New Zealand, and the Cape Clear International Storytelling Festival in Ireland, Parent moves easily from silliness to poignancy, and combines an understated mastery of the storytelling form with a highly developed sense of fun. Parent is a recipient of the NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence award. “The storyteller, in the fullness of his craft, has struck, and the spell is on, as surely as it was when Homer conjured up a fleet of ships on a wine-dark sea bound for the walls of Troy.” – Time Magazine
