Festival Programs

My repertoire includes a wide range of stories that are particularly appropriate for festival audiences. Program-length stories offer great fun as well as opportunities for reflection.  Festival programs can be designed to suit audiences of adults, or audiences of all ages.  I often find that adult festival goers are delighted with the chance to revisit folktales and myths.

A marvelous way with the audience...

Tom Lee has a wonderful command of language, pacing, imagery, and a marvelous way with the audience.  I'm so glad he's doing this work.

- Jay O'Callahan, Storyteller

A great, fun spirit!

Watching Tom Lee is like watching an a cappella singer with total mastery of his craft.  He has a great fun spirit and his performances transcend ethnicity and age.  He has a sincere belief in the power of storytelling, especially as a cultural option for 'urban-oriented' adults.
