About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Reverend Ringleader
Location Portland / St Louis, OR / MO
Introduction Upon finishing secondary school Dr Folklore traveled briefly with Miles Aerial Circus and Carpet Cleaning as an apprentice contortionist and pig keeper, but laid aside his acrobatic ambitions to pursue a career in orthodontics. He served for several years as the town’s only dentist before his practice was shut down on accusations of malpractice, maladjustment, malnutrition, public drunkenness and suspicious behavior. Collecting a band of ragtag musicians, runaway circus performers and bedraggled chimney sweeps, Dr. Folklore returned to his roots in the entertainment industry, releasing several records which have become moderately well known among vagrants and travelers. In the shadow of pending investigations by local authorities, Dr. Folklore left his beloved home in Oregon to wander the country alone, and is often seen offering up melancholy ballads in the dark corners of public houses and taverns.
