Rob Seutter aka True Thomas: True’s personal story….
True Thomas the Storyteller (aka Robert Seutter) has been storytelling for many years. He comes by it naturally.
He freelanced, doing RPG design, game theory and writing.
Rob runs into a re-enactment group called the Queen Medb Encampment, who reenacted ancient Celtic history and personaes.
He applied for the name of “True Thomas de Rhymour, a 13th Century Scottish poet and prophet.”
Rob was nominated as their Bard and, for the next seven years, immersed himself in Celtic history, culture, and folklore.
He was given the title of Ard Ollave (High poet). Part of his responsibility in the organization was educating and training others, as well as entertaining.
Rob aka True was storytelling at rennaissance and Irish faires, and had started to make a name for himself.
He moved on to storytelling at schools and then to anybody who would hold still long enough to listen.
His focus was on creating venues for storytelling and the folk arts and created over 190 storytelling shows.
True, as he was known, ” True wore many hats and was integral to the creation of the World Storytelling Festival.
True is working diligently on further developing the many aspects of his storytelling art.
True is an avid proponent of storytelling.
He teaches the art, creates events, and has performed in a wide variety of places from campfires to battlefields.
His personal storytelling philosophy is that a good storyteller should be able to tell to anyone, anywhere it’s physically possible. That anyone can and should tell stories, and that to become a master of the craft, can take a lifetime.
He’s also a big believer in the spiritual side of storytelling. He believes in the power of stories and that the right story, in the right time and place can change the world.
