A beautiful Autumn day. The Storyteller is coming this afternoon I tell everybody. And indeed ‘The Flying Tortoise’ is sighted, creating interest all round. Keith The Storyteller, The Roaming Rhymester and Social Commentator had arrived at the village to tell us stories. We sat close as Keith played soft guitar music as he told his magical, thought provoking and entertaining stories, We were all totally engaged in the now. Keith is a very good storyteller and I would highly recommend him to entertain you. We would like Keith to return.

Whangateau Acoustic Music And Social Club Event, February 29, 2016
Posted: May 6th, 2016 by Keith Levy | Leave a comment

Back in February, my friends and I were entertained at the Whangateau Folk Club by Keith Levy in his role as The Roaming Rhymester. Keith accompanies himself on guitar whilst telling wonderful, soulful, thought provoking stories in rhyme. Some are funny, others sad but overall thoroughly entertaining. It was a great performance in front of a large crowd in the hall. How I would like to hear him in a smaller group situation like a club or house party. His stories are beautifully crafted tales of life, all written and told from his intriguing viewpoint.

Such talent. If you get the opportunity, go listen,,,

A diverse group of friends and neighbours gathered at our home on Saturday evening and were enthralled, entertained and delighted with Keith’s uniquely told stories in rhyme. The feedback has been fabulous and we look forward to hosting Keith again, and too, having The Flying Tortoise parked on our lawn.

A Kaiaua Coast Concert For Luthier Noel Sweetman, March 16, 2016
Posted: March 16th, 2016 by Keith Levy | Leave a comment

I travelled today to the Kaiaua Seabird Coast on The Firth of Thames to meet up with an extraordinary friend in Keith Levy. As The Roaming Rhymester he presents his own worldly tales, with guitar accompaniment, in an original and often quirky mix of rhyme, free verse and social commentary. He kept me captivated for an hour with an impromptu concert, the likes of which I have never heard before. Do attend if he’s doing a gig near you…
