  • Connie Regan-Blake, Storyteller, The Gathering -- Wednesday, January 22

    It is hard to tell sometimes whether Connie Regan-Blake is a storyteller or a comedian. Her tales provoke so much laughter from audiences that storytelling simply does not fully describe her talent. Yet, that is exactly what she is, and is proud to be. We hope you will join us and be entertained by one of the most celebrated storytellers traveling the world today, sharing folktales and true-life stories and spinning tales.
