Storytellers, Speakers, Performers

Storytellers | Speakers | Performers

Welcome to the Historical Society of Michigan’s directory of Storytellers, Speakers, and Musicians. Years ago, HSM maintained an index-card “Speakers Bureau” and provided referrals over the phone or by mail. This online resource is designed as a useful tool to identify people or groups that you might like to contact for your history-related event. All of the entries on our list have a connection to Michigan’s history or are focused on broader history as a key element in their presentations. Membership in the Historical Society of Michigan is required to be listed.




  • Mike Fornes: Edmund Fitzgerald and Gordon Lightfoot Tribute

Financial support for some of the speakers, storytellers and musicians listed above may be available from the Michigan Humanities Council. Please visit the Michigan Humanities Council for more information.
