ABOUT TIM & LEANNE

Live audience "greatest hits" video recorded

Our first serious attempt at a live-performance video was recorded between Easter and Earth Day, before a packed & lively audience equal parts kids, seniors, teens/twenties, and regular adults. Three cameras recording a single hour-long session, with a guy in the control room fitting it all together on the fly.

The energy was good, the audience and technicians seemed happy, and we felt good afterwards. Lots of little mistakes, hopefully the kind nobody else will notice. We'll see the results pretty soon. You'll be able to watch at least some of it here.

SEPTEMBER ALERT-- NJ, NY, CT, PA

Do you live in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut or eastern Pennsylvania? Mid-September 2014 we head southward & headline the StoryFusion Festival in Bethlehem PA. We've booked a couple of additional shows in passing, and could do a couple more in the area and in route. Our expenses are paid, and we're feeling flexible on rates. Contact us us for details.

VAMPIRE PRINCESS-- Wrap up

We premiered a major new piece, showcased it with some of our favorite "eerie" stories, made a live performance CD, and toured with it around the state. Reviewers liked the show and the CD, and audience response was good. We're glad to have the title story comfortably in repertoire. We're very glad there's a Permanent Record of all the material in the show.

"Damned entertaining... all were captivated...Tim Jennings and Leanne Ponder are simply Vermont treasures; hearing their stories never grows old."

VIDEO-- Performance and Interview

From CCTV, in Burlington.

For some reason it's been hard to make good TV out of our storytelling, but we think this Channel 17 story broke through, really catching the visual elements and rhythms and nuances that help make an old tale swing. We like the interview too, all the way to the end, but of course we're interested in that stuff, maybe more than most people.

Seven minutes of storytelling, followed by 30 minutes about what we think we're up to.

"Four Friends and a Tiger," about 7 minutes, followed by a thirty minute interview.
