Ilene Evans

Storyteller Ilene Evans

Ilene Evans currently resides in Thomas, West Virginia. She has collected stories from around the world that encompass many cultures. The West Virginia mountains have proven the greatest crossroads of stories, times, and tales for Ilene. Her performance company, Voices From the Earth, provides the venues for her to reproduce the tales of real people, their struggles and their triumphs.

Some of her performances include General Moses: Stories from the Life of Harriet Tubman, folk tales, slave tales, and Brer tales. Her performances are energetic and lively, including dancing, singing, dramatic vocal talent, and leave the audience with a feeling of having been a part of the story. "I think that storytellers are, from the old times, teachers, " stated Ilene. Her stories not only tell the tale, but they seek to teach a lesson or at least to inspire the audience to think more about themselves and the world than they normally do on a daily basis.
