Hello! I’m Kate Chadbourne – singer, storyteller, poet, harper, teacher, scholar, and apprentice enchanter.  I’m here to kindle imagination and delight through teaching, performing, and creating beauty.

My favorite times are when we create, imagine, love, and enchant TOGETHER and the result is

a wild and frolicsome gathering

a song that lifts the heart

a story that opens the path before you

poems that ring with truth and power

and a world that feels friendly and filled with possibility and magic.

Friends, let’s enchant the world, story by story, song by song, heart by heart.

Let’s do the bardic work of creating beautiful lives.

Welcome, with all my heart. I’m glad you’re here!
