As an acclaimed storyteller Simon Brooks has engaged and transfixed with his powerful performances all over New England. As a master storyteller, Simon has taught and performed at libraries, schools, colleges, festivals, camps and at museums!  With his bodhrán and stories, Simon combines the intensity of a solo performance with the intimacy of a face-to-face conversation whether on CD or live. People all over New England seek Simon for his storytelling. He is popular with kids, being so kid-like himself, and the twinkle in his eye has adults laughing, too.
