Gail de Vos' speciality is telling contemporary legends to young and not so young adults. But whatever the story, she weaves a bond between herself and listeners, calling up memories and emotions and helping us understand ourselves and the world we live in. Gail de Vos combines the art of storytelling with folktales, both traditional and contemporary, legends and myths, and stories of local history and personal heroes to create unforgettable performances and engaging workshops and clinics. Participants in Canada, in the USA and in Europe have enjoyed Gail's performances and writing and storytelling workshops at school events, libraries, historical parks, festivals, special events and on national radio. For many years she told stories at Fort Edmonton Park to bring the history of the Edmonton area alive through storytelling and was co-oganizer of the annual Storytelling Festival held at the Park for 18 years.
