Much of John Porcino’s training for his 30 years as a storyteller and singer arose while creating and participating in the zany & touching moments around a campfire - all of life, seen through a flickering fire light, surrounded by the magnificent beauty of the natural world. These days John spins some 200 performances, workshops, and in-service trainings each year for folks of all ages. His performances are a mix of stories and songs that are sparked to life with warmth, humor, a playful touch of audience participation, and a twist of music from around the world. His workshops are playful, clear, hands on journeys from which participants leave with real skills and enthusiasm for bringing the work into their life. For John, the arts are joyful pathways toward celebrating our common humanity and the legacy of life on our planet.
