Regi Carpenter, an award-winning performer, has toured her solo shows and workshops both nationally and internationally. Carpenter is the youngest daughter in a family that pulsates with contradictions: religious and raucous, tender but terrible, unfortunate yet irrepressible. Tales of underwater tea parties, drowning lessons, and drives to the dump give voice to multi-generations of family life in a small river town with an undercurrent.
In addition to receiving Parent’s Choice and Storytelling World awards, Regi’s stories have been featured on Sirius Radio, Apple Seed Radio, The Moth, and NPR.
“There is such a sincere charm to her subtle – yet quite spirited and sly – telling. As she affectionately unrolls her tapestries drawn from generations along the St. Lawrence River… she weaves the threads of genuine reflection, baby boomer sensibilities and whimsical song. In a word, captivating.” — Cape Girardeau Storytelling Festival
