About Andy Davis!

Andy Davis got his start as a storyteller telling comic tales by candlelight in Mexican refugee camps 30 years ago. His current work weaves together personal narrative, folklore, and grassroots history. He is particularly interested in the timeless humansearch for meaning and belonging, and in how the stories we give our attention to can help us place ourselves in our time and on the land. Andy lives in a home-made house in the southeast corner of the White Mountains.
