Eleven Wesleyan student storytellers
Andy Offitt-Irwin, an American storyteller, arts educator, singer-songwriter, and humorist. Born and raised in Covington, Georgia, he is equal parts mischievous schoolboy and the Marx Brothers, peppered with a touch of the Southern balladeer.
Caroline Herring is an American singer/songwriter who inspires audiences through her songs about injustice, hope, and perseverance. Herring’s career began in Austin, TX, when she won Best New Artist at the SXSW Austin Music Awards. Since then, she has recorded eight albums and for almost 20 years she’s toured throughout the United States and Europe.
Andy Offitt-Irwin will wrap up the evening with more stories and songs.
