Odds Bodkin

Since 1982, master storyteller, author, and musician Odds Bodkin has combined dramatic voices, vocal effects, narrative, and live music to create imaginative experiences for audiences. During those decades he has created hundreds of tales that range from a four hour version of The Odyssey to children’s musicals. A published children’s author and award-winning recording artist, he has toured Great Britain, performed twice at The White House, been called “a consummate storyteller” by the New York Times for his Off-Broadway shows at Lincoln Center and been a Featured Teller at the National Storytelling Festival. Museums such as the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston have hired him to tell stories about works in their collections, while companies and organizations including IBM and Target have commissioned original performances and voice-overs for outreach and educational media. His recordings and books have won Parents’ Choice, Indie, Golden Headset, Storytelling World, Pick of the Lists, Editors’ Choice, and Dove awards.
