Kristy has been storytelling professionally for almost ten years with her partner and husband, Eric Price (“Hand” of Hand to Mouth). Together they have combined their talents to form Hand to Mouth Storytelling. Using Kristy’s theatrical background and library experience coupled with Eric’s musicianship and antics, they are a highly interactive duo. While this concert does not illustrate their tandem telling, the original story told here was written as the Hand to Mouth team. Drumming and audience participation is a key to their telling style.
Kristy has been married to Eric for nearly twenty years and they share four beautiful monkeys…oops, we mean…children! All of their children have inherited the storytelling bug and have been seen in performances with their parents as well as solo. Kristy is a diverse storyteller, using old world tales (especially Italian!), fables, comic children’s stories, poetry, songs, original works and especially management methods.
