Andy Offutt Irwin: He's blinding us with ... stories

Posted By on Wed, Jan 30, 2008 at 7:40 PM

In researching "Tell me a story," my current cover "package" on professional storytellers from the Atlanta area, I didn't find very much online video about my primary tellers. Carmen Deedy's website does include a clip, introduced by Cokie Roberts, of Deedy addressing the Library of Congress' 2002 National Book Festival.

However, I did find this extremely amusing clip of the Kandinsky Trio and storyteller Andy Offutt Irwin performing a classical-style arrangement of Thomas Dolby's "She Blinded Me with Science." No storytelling, but it showcases Irwin's enjoyable talent for whistles and song effects:

You can hear individual podcasts of the cover story's four principal tellers as they practice their craft here.
