Audience comments after performances.

“It was an exciting and varied evening, lots of graceful movement and discreet sensuality. Intricately woven themes and a touching and appealing stage presence, I enjoyed every moment.

It was very different, and very engaging.”

“Absolute delight to see the wonderful Kevin Walker perform tonight with his fabulous Oberon!”

“The story of Oberon, King of the Faeries. Shakespeare didn’t tell more than a fraction of it, but Kevin Walker told the whole dramatic life story.”

 

“…..the great Kevin Walker at his masterly best.”

 

“It really was special. So glad that I was able to see Kevin’s performance, it was spellbinding, just as a tale of the faerie folk should be.”

 

“A lovely evening from the young master.”

“What a special night at Liskeard Storytelling Cafe tonight. We were privileged to be among the first audiences for Kevin Walker’s new show “Shadows and Light” – the story of Oberon, King of the faerie. Little known tales of Oberon’s origins were interwoven with song. Echoes of familiar were plaited with the strange and wonderful as we moved from Greek Isles to France, from Heaven to Hell with angels, faerie and the pure of heart. Characters we thought we were familiar with turned out to be quite the opposite. And through it all we were in the physical presence of Oberon.

 If you’re tantalized, then so you should be. A magical evening.

 Many many thanks Kevin.”

“I wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience you shared with your audience at Kelmarsh Hall on Wednesday 14th and 21st August……. As I told you on the first day, I took my Kindle along to read, envisioning Daniel sitting happily at the front and me keeping out of the way at the back. Not a chance- the Kindle stayed in my bag and I enjoyed it as much as Daniel.”

Pauline Goodman. A fond Grandma!
