Batt Burns, a seanachie (storyteller) in the old Irish tradition, was a former school principal and author in Ireland before becoming a full time storyteller in the U.S. A. in 1994. As a youth in the Hills of Kerry, he was surrounded by storytellers, and he spent invaluable years with his storytelling grandfather, Michael Clifford. Steeped in Irish wit and humour he has appeared at the major festivals in the USA including The National Storytelling Festival in 1994, and has featured at many campuses including, Harvard, Notre Dame, Northwestern and Kent State where he was storyteller-in-residence in 1995. He has performed at The Kennedy Centre in Washington DC on a number of occasions including St. Patrick's Night, 2002. He directs teacher workshops and does school assemblies. His storytelling and poetry recordings are very popular as are his conference presentations. He also hosts unique tours of Ireland, during which travelers are immersed in the music, song, dance, folklore, literature, archaeology and storytelling of The Emerald Isle.
