Sam Pearsall retired in January 2013 after serving 35 years as an ecologist; working with conservation organizations in Maine, Tennessee, Hawaii, and North Carolina. Now living in Raleigh, NC with his wife Linda, who has nicknamed him "The Help," Sam pursues his hobbies including traveling, storytelling, gardening, hand drumming, making fused glass, peddling, paddling, perambulating, and puttering. He does a lot of puttering! His stories are all true tales and tall tales. The former are all based on personal experiences, and so are the latter.


Chris Wise is a retired soldier, writer, story teller, song maker, folk song singer, weaver, guitarist, and holder of a Bachelor of Science degree (Honours) in War Studies from the University of Baluchistan. In recent years he's been exploring the extremely permeable boundaries separating story-telling, folksong, folktale, the truth, fabrications in the search of truth, meditations on the meaning of truth, and outright lies. Sometimes he gets lost. Sometimes he needs folks to help him find his way back. Mostly, he just likes to tell stories and play the songs that go with them.



Gale Buck can be found on many stages from local parks to campgrounds in the Virginia Mountains, even real theater stages. An avid writer (three projects on his desk at this time) he has used his passion to garner championships in multiple tall tale contests. Always looking for a new story to share, he brings a new tale back from the North Pole every year, Gale has been told "I hate to ask you a question because the answer is almost always a story." Gale shares his talents freely as facilitator for Village Storytellers which meets the First Tuesday of the month at The Sertoma Arts Center in Raleigh, NC.
