Art of the Story Festival: Norm Brecke

Norm Brecke tells everywhere; from narrating for the Seattle Symphony to being a featured teller at the PowellsWood Storytelling Festival, from the Seattle Art Museum to Tom’s Shoes.

Norm spices folktales to make them unique, spins personal stories that reflect his Northwest roots, and performs entertaining historical programs. He often brings music to his stories with guitar, ukulele, banjo, or jaw harp.

Norm taught elementary school for 14 years and developed after-school storytelling programs as well. He and his wife teach storytelling to adults at workshops and Portland Community College. Find out more at normbrecke.com.
