Pritchett, who lives in Williamsburg, Va., has been a full-time storyteller for more than 20 years. He has researched and presented real characters from America’s past for the Smithsonian museums, Colonial Williamsburg, Monticello, the Museum of the Confederacy, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. In addition to recording several albums of folk tales, Pritchett has created the voices for many historical characters in museum recordings and exhibits. Each year he visits more than 100 schools, libraries, museums, festivals, conferences, and educational institutions.
