Barry Marshall and Jeri Burns PhD have been working together as The Storycrafters since 1991. They have presented performances, workshops and residencies using the art of storytelling in the US, Europe, and the West Indies. The Storycrafters use world folklore to integrate storytelling into many aspects of curriculum, including ELA, Creative Writing, Social Studies, Character Ed., Multi-cultural Ed., and more. Their unique musical duo-style of storytelling integrates ethnic and folk musical instruments, song, and dance into the stories. They have won many awards for their work, including National Storytelling Network 'Circle of Excellence' Award, Parent's Choice, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, Storytelling World, and the Gold Award for Artistic Excellence from the Cayman National Cultural Foundation.
