From 1995 to 2009 BZ Smith and Cynthia Restivo performed some of California’s most dynamic tandem storytelling programs. What fun they had together, performing more than a thousand shows for schools, libraries, festivals and community gatherings! And they garnered many awards, including a Parents’ Choice Gold Award in 2001 for their CD, The Story Quilters and Folk Musician Bill Roberson.
“Cynthia and I had an amazing journey together, traveling all over California, sharing our lives and our stories. We each grew artistically and spiritually.”
Now out there on their own, each one credits the other with being a deep inspiration in their shared and individual careers. To learn more about Cynthia’s work, please check out HER website at www.cynthiarestivo.com. To learn more about BZ’s work, just keep cruising right here at hive-arts.org.
