“If we are talking Rock ‘n Roll, Tina Turner was a national treasure; country has Dolly Parton, and in the world of storytelling we have Kim Weitkamp.” – Steve Perry from Highway 89 SiriusXM
Kim grew up as the red headed middle child of exhausted parents. Her childhood adventures were shaped by TV’s Sanford & Son, All in the Family, and M.A.S.H. . . . plus the old worn out fairy tale collection she read over and over. Add to that her father’s love of Johnny Cash and old time radio shows being played throughout the house and the dye was cast. One review stated, “Kim is a master at seamlessly building bridges from story, to song, to story. Like all good storytellers, she evokes both laughter and tears, but her impeccable timing and dead-on anticipation of her listeners’ needs place her at the pinnacle of her craft. Then, she pulls her guitar out and you think, where did that come from, that milk and honey voice?” Kim travels the continent full time performing at theaters and at festivals. She is the recipient of the Blue Ridge Excellence in the Arts Award, the Toastmasters International Leadership in Communication Award, and 7 Storytelling World Awards.
