Album Notes
Once, there was a way to sing the stories of our ancestors and honor the living
inner worlds of our imaginations; a way of bringing wisdom, connectedness
and engagement to the greater human tribe. These ways of telling story,
particularly of the oral tradition, have offered breadcrumbs of paradox and a
way to remember that storytelling is not just a form of communication – it's a
uniquely human practice.

I believe the value of storytelling transcends language, information and
culture. Storytelling is older than fire. I take part in a ritual telling of the old
stories – myth, fairy tales, folkmyths – because I believe they are alive and
offer an essential and wild human nutrient which has been depleted in our
increasingly high-tech, data-driven, globalizing, 24/7 world. I tell these
stories out of great respect for those tellers who have passed these stories on
to all of us, and as as reminder of who we are as wild storytelling animals.

Jeff Leinaweaver, Storyteller
