With his penny whistle in hand, Norman’s storytelling journey has taken him from Canada to the Orkneys, Israel and Sri Lanka as a teller of traditional stories in schools, parks, sidewalks, wherever the story spirit calls for a tale. Two highlights have been sharing a stage with Traveller storyteller Duncan in Orkney and working with Sam the wandering pelican at the Butterfly Peace Garden in Batticaloa, Sri Lanka.

He runs the Four Winds Storytellers Library, a 6,000 volume collection of folktales from around the world, as a free research resource that has aided storytellers, authors and other researchers since 1990.
