Ingrid Nixon: Adventure Calls (Adult program and ages 6+)

Ingrid Nixon is a world-traveling storyteller, who loves nothing more than to whisk away Ingridlisteners on journeys of the imagination. Exploration nail-biters, lies, tall tales, traditional and personal stories—she tells them all, bringing characters to life using voices, gestures, and animated facial expressions. Her creative approaches to story crafting help make traditional tales relevant to modern audiences.

Ingrid’s first CD, Grimm’s with a Twist, offers deliciously dark stories spiced liberally with humor and pathos. Her new recording, Operation Bouncy Chair, features personal stories about the important things in life: family, love, and coffee. She is a champion liar many times over, a claim that makes her mother both proud and worried. After living in Alaska for many years working in the wilds as a National Park Service ranger, she currently hails from Washington State. Find out more at
