ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Geraldine’s stories are pilates for your funny bone. Her humor is 100% natural – the polar opposite of her hair color."
Bil Lepp, National Storyteller

"Once in a while you come across someone who is a born storyteller. Someone who is engaging, interesting, vibrant and majorly talented. I found all of those things in Geraldine. I could sit and listen to her for hours."
Kim Weitkamp, National Storyteller, Humorist, Singer, Songwriter

"Geraldine Buckley is a passionate woman. Her capacity for hilarity is equal to her capacity to care for the most downtrodden people you or I might encounter. When she laughs (while seated) her feet rise up, her head rears back and her hands clap – she reminds me of a five-year-old little girl who has just been given a real life magenta-colored pony for her birthday.

When I heard her tell stories, I found myself caring for the souls of the downtrodden. I also noticed my feet rising, my hands clapping, and my heart warmer and somehow wiser."
Andy Offutt Irwin, National Storyteller, Singer, Songwriter

"Geraldine Buckley is one of the most delightful storytellers I’ve heard in years. I hung on her every word. Her stories are witty, insightful and most interesting. I could have sat at her feet and listened for hours. Plus, she’s way cuter than a puppy dog and twice as loveable."
Suzi Whaples, National Storyteller

"You can't help but fall in love with Geraldine on stage. She brings an unparalleled enthusiasm, passion, and love to her stories and for the people and places that are in them. Her stories are vivid, engaging, and well-crafted. A natural storyteller. "
Amy Saidman, Director, SpeakeasyDC

"Geraldine Buckley takes the stage and confidently draws you into her story and holds you fast all the way to a satisfying end. She is a funny, delightful new voice – a gift from Ireland by way of England – a welcome addition to the national storytelling scene."
Ellouise Schoettler, National Storyteller

Linda Goodman

Destination? Slammer! is a Winner!
Geraldine Buckley, a former British convent schoolgirl, is a comedian, a poet, a philosopher, and, above all, a storytelling evangelist. Listeners will fall in love with her self-effacing humor, rapier wit, unique wisdom, and her eagerness to share all the she has learned from life.
The cover that Andrea Stasulis created for Destination? Slammer! is as colorful and unique as the wonderful teller it showcases. This recording boasts the best CD insert I have ever seen, with liner notes for each story and information about Geraldine’s work.
This CD is the winner of a Storytelling World Gold Award, and deservedly so. This world is filled with uncertainty, fear, and pain. Geraldine Buckley has found the secret joy that lies within the darkness and these stories bring that joy to life. You will not soon forget her men behind bars, or her fearless, selfless quest to be of service to them. Her blessing to you is these stories, which bear testimony to her belief that, with God, anything is possible.
