Known for his hilarious stories, whistling skills and, perhaps more than anything, the delightful character “Aunt Marguerite Van Camp”, Andy is a one-man artist extraordinaire. He describes himself as “equal parts mischievous schoolboy and the Marx Brothers, peppered with a touch of the Southern balladeer”.

Andy spent six years as a Featured Teller at the National Storytelling Festival. He has appeared ten times as Teller in Residence at the International Storytelling Center. Andy’s captivating talents have led him to be a Guest Artist at La Guardia High School of Art, Music, and Performing Arts in New York (The “FAME!” School), Keynote Speaker/Performer at the Library of Congress-Virburnum Foundation Conference on Family Literacy, Guest Writer/ Performer with the Georgia Tech Glee Club and a guest composer with the Amherst College Men’s Double Quartet. He was also Artist-In-Residence in Theatre at Emory University’s Oxford College from 1991 to 2007.

Legendary storyteller, showman and humorist, Andy Orfutt Irwin will be performing at the January 28, 2017 Songs & Stories hosted by The Craddock Center in Cherry Log, Ga. This is a free event, so bring a friend and arrive early! Seating is limited and doors open at 3 p.m. to the divine voice of Hannah From. 
Hannah Sage From is a 16 year old junior at White County High School. She started telling stories on stage in the 2nd grade. In addition to storytelling, she enjoys reading all genres of books, singing ballads and playing music. She has been involved with the Georgia Pick and Bow Traditional Music School since 2011, where she learned to play the claw hammer banjo, guitar and upright bass. Hannah is thankful to the Craddock Center for bringing music and stories to children because she knows first hand how much it impacts lives!
