This year’s headliner act is Lona Bartlett, a professional storyteller, puppeteer and educator who has performed throughout the U.S. and internationally for more than 30 years.
Cooper Braun from Colorado, Simon Brooks from New Hampshire, Yasu Ishida of South Carolina and Paul Strickland from Kentucky round out the featured tellers performing at this year’s festival.
Dubbed the official storytelling festival of South Carolina, the Stone Soup Storytelling Festival is built upon the various versions of the traditional story of Stone Soup. The moral of the story is that by working together, with everyone contributing what they can, a greater good is achieved.
