Blarney and Beyond!
The highest ranking Irish storyteller in the USA as judged by Ireland's Oirectas na Gaeilge and the North American Gaeltacht, Yvonne continues family tradition in two languages.

Weird Irish legends, romantically chilling ghost stories, outrageous family lore, or thought-provoking adult fare. Yvonne Healy was born across the water and raised on an American Main Street. When she talks, the wind forgets to blow and kids forget to txt or watch TV!

* Yvonne Healy's a triple threat: dynamite storyteller, workshop presenter, and emcee. - Elizabeth Ellis, NEA American Masterpiece Artist, TX

* An Irish pixie of a performer! You could hear a pin drop! Superb! - Senior Programs, Harrison, MI

*Using simply voice, gesture and story, this award-winning performing artist and author invites you into the theater of your own imagination.

*Immigrating to America as a child, Yvonne grew up in the Irish oral tradition before performing on New York stage and screen as an adult.

*In 1998 Healy relocated to Michigan where her artistic achievements earned the honor of representing the Michigan Arts & Humanities Council Touring Program and numerous awards for CDs and writing.
