Tama Lunceford

Performing Member

Tama’s vivid imagination, expressive manner and colorful language touch minds and hearts through all kinds of stories; folktales, fairy tales, tall tales, personal, historical, and hysterical stories. In addition to traditional tales, Tama has crafted several collections of original works, many focused on storytelling and social justice. Others she tells to honor the memories of those who have moved on, Tom tales in remembrance of her father Tom, and Bob Tales for her husband. Her Master’s Degree allows Tama to teach Communication Studies with Walters State Community College in Morristown, TN. She uses stories in her classroom to engage students and illustrate communication concepts, although the students find the entertainment is a nice side effect. Today you can see Tama telling stories and facilitating workshops for the Jonesborough Storytellers Guild, area schools, museums, healthcare facilities, and local festivals. She entertains, uplifts, and connects people to each other and the world we share with delight and enthusiasm through story.
