Anne Rutherford has engaged audiences with vivid performances of original and vintage tales since 1999.  Her repertoire includes original fictional tales, ghost stories, tall tales, personal stories, Paciific Northwest Folklore and the occasional knock-knock joke. 

She’s done many recordings, and her 2016 CD "The Habit of Joy" was a Storytelling World Award Winner. She is four-time 1st-place winner at the Northwest Folklife Festival Liar’s Contest in Seattle, and took the grand prize in the NW Tall Tale Challenge in 2016.

Anne will be offering a Master Class on the process she uses to create her stories for those interested in this art form.  There are a limited number of tickets available for the Master Class.
