science and a sense of place since 1991
My name is Barry Patterson and I am a performer specialising in
storytelling with songs and music. I perform in character, so that
my shows aren't just story telling but they are certainly more
that just live role play. My background is in education, museums
and site interpretation but I appear at all manner of venues -
indoors and out, for a wide range of audiences.
I have some stock performances such as the Wild Man of the Woods which has been going since 1991 but I also have a lot of other material and I have done a variety of work over the past few years, much of it science or natural history related.
I am a member of Equity and I am listed in schoolworkshops.com
"The magic and mystery of your show will remain vivid in the children's memories for a long time. The children learnt history, botany, science and folklore without realising it - a marvellous achievement. The combination of music, costume and drama was enchanting. For forty-five minutes we were taken back to a time when the forests were the homes and providers of food for everybody. Sheer bliss as the modern world receded away."
