Francis McCarron is a community development worker, regional tour guide and storyteller from County Monaghan. He grew up near the village of Tydavnet, a place steeped in legend and folklore. He has been telling stories for over 20 years – and some are even true! Francis believes that, in Ireland, a knowledge of the old tales and legends (and a little bit of the Irish language) brings the mystery and magic of the surrounding landscape to life.
Jane Dorfman is a storyteller from the Greater Washington DC area of the United States.
Jane tells tales of dutiful daughters and wise women, faithful sons and wicked kings, of magic skipping ropes and Irish heroes, of the angel Elijah and the fools of Chelm. She tells personal stories about her New Orleans childhood and her Maryland neighbours. She revels in stories from the Arabian Nights and tells a few lies as well.
Masako was born in Tokyo, Japan.Her increasing repertoire of traditional Japanese tales, some comical, some serious, is now expanding to include tales from around the world. She recently completed a National Open College Network Level 2 qualification in oral storytelling, a course supported by funding from Libraries NI.
