According to the Denton (TX) Record Chronicle "Willy Claflin was the biggest hit at the National Storytelling Festival. Every event that he appeared in was packed with standing room only." Accompanied by his faithful sidekick Maynard Moose, Willy Claflin has brought his unhinged comedy and musical surprises to stages across the country and beyond, from California to Cape Clear, Ireland. Willy has been a headliner for many years at the National Storytelling Festival in Jonseborough, Tennessee, and has headlined National Story Night, which kicks off the Festival. He has released nine award-winning recordings, and has been the recipient of numerous storytelling awards.
