About Johnny’s Storytelling
- The art of storytelling comes naturally to musician, author, and storyteller Johnny Cuomo. Collecting stories from his travels and interests, Johnny combines these with his musical talents to unfold tales of nature, birds, animals and stories from near and afar.
- As a volunteer teacher on the Barona and Viejas Indian Reservations in California, Johnny developed a special connection with the Native American culture, which has enriched his abilities as a storyteller of Indian tales.
- While living and attending school in Ireland, Johnny learned ﬁrst hand about the Irish culture and music, which sent him on a path to forming his own traditional Irish band, Gallowglass, performing all over the US and abroad.
- Johnny has been sharing folk tales with children and adults of all ages in schools, libraries, museums, hospitals, nature centers and numerous other venues for over 20 years.
