For the 21st annual George West Storyfest, the faces of the featured storytellers are familiar ones: Bil Lepp, DeCee Cornish, and Sheila Starks Phillips. Each of this year’s featured storytellers is a respected storyteller in his/her own right, but they all have something in common: They’re accomplished liars!

Bil Lepp from West Virginia graced the stages of Storyfest in 2002. He is known for his outrageous tall tales and witty stories, appealing to listeners of all ages.

DeCee Cornish has been a regular at Storyfest since 2002. At age eighteen, he joined the military and literally traveled the world, experiencing the cultures of the Pacific Rim, Southeast Asia, Australia, Alaska, and the desert tribes of the Southwest.

Sheila Starks Phillips is not a newcomer to Storyfest, either, having performed as both a school storyteller and a stage storyteller in both 2003 and 2006. Her storytelling career was launched in 1990, and she is presently listed on the Traveling Artists Roster of the Texas Commission on the Arts. She has authored one children’s book, The Eggstra-Ordinary Surprise, and has produced a cd entitled The Lies of Texas Are Upon You.

Storyfest is planned for Nov. 7 on the Live Oak County courthouse square.
