Jim Rohe

Jim Rohe A self taught singer and storyteller, Jim has been a construction worker, roofer, short-order cook, dishwasher, truck driver, and foreman. In 1987, as the father of two young children, Jim discovered storytelling and his true calling. This led to “Gentle Rhythms,” an ongoing program of music and story for young children which now operates in a number of school including the Clendinning School in Nutley, Over the Rainbow in Montclair, the Children’s Day Nursery in Passaic, the Early Learning Center in Fairfield, Small Wonders in Passaic, the Garbrellian Childcare Center in Hackensack, and East Orange Head Start.

Jim has performed in Tellabrations from 1995 to the present and has been a featured teller at the MAST Gathering (Mid-Atlantic Storytelling Festival) in Pennsylvania. His programs for K˜12 combine story and song. Jim is a seasoned performer who appears before audiences more than 250 times a year. His rapport with his audience makes each program a special event.
