Storyteller Linda "Schuyler" Ford
Linda Schuyler Ford brings stories to life, and life to stories!
Linda grew up in New York's enchanted Hudson Valley, hearing the stories of her Dutch and German ancestors. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow played out across the narrow streets and woodlands of her childhood home. It's no wonder she became a storyteller!
Linda now travels up and down the East coast giving storytelling concerts, facilitating storytelling workshops and leading Story-based support groups for caregivers and health care professionals.
Her latest concert, Speak Peace: Storytelling to Open Our Eyes and Lift Our Hearts, is a treasure trove of wisdom, laughter, compassion. Here, Linda brings folktales, fairy tales and true personal stories to life for adult audiences. While the richness of the stories stand alone as pure entertainment, listeners will take away uplifting messages, and an unspoken invitation to take action for good.
Whether she is telling a Dutch folktale, a haunting ghost tale, or a true-life story, she embodies the magic and wonder that carry audiences away.
Musician John Henry Redgate said: Linda Schuyler Ford keeps it lighthearted, but goes soul-deep."
