"It was a fantastic performance and we were absolutely thrilled with the outcome."
- Sara Fleming on Henry's performance for her daughter's birthday party
Henry Vogel is a regionally-renowned storyteller with a lively and energetic delivery. Henry tells original stories as well as traditional folk tales. He has a fondness for "noodlehead" stories, funny stories, and stories with a twist. When the sun goes down, he can just as easily call forth ghosts and ghouls from the flickering light of a campfire.
A former professional comic book writer and current science fiction novelist, Henry naturally took to making up stories for his son. As his son grew older, Henry was invited to share those stories in his son's classroom. Finding his stories were entertaining to people who weren't related to him, Henry decided to take a crack at telling stories professionally.
Over the past five years later, Henry has been invited to participate in several local storytelling festivals, including four times at the Perry Library Storyfest in Henderson, NC, and three times at the Wake County Storytelling Festival. In 2009, Henry was one of the featured tellers at the Perry Library Storyfest. He has performed Halloween programs for the City of Burlington's Haunted Halloween Festival, Harris Lake County Park's Halloween Festival, and the Durant Nature Park. Along the way, he has performed as several schools in North Carolina and many private functions.
Henry is available for any event where good stories are welcome.
