NEAR and Far Storytellers (Hosted by Jim Harriman and Carolyn Stearns)

January 14 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


This event is being hosted by Jim Harriman and Carolyn Stearns.

What a great place to try out a new story or an oldie that needs polish or as a neophyte just to get your feet wet in front of the storytelling community.  The first half of the program is an open mic session for anyone to venture into the excitement of story. The second half will feature Teresa Whitaker and Frank Schwartz, a dynamic combination of musicians and storytellers. People walk away from every time they perform with a sense of quiet exuberance and warmth that lasts a long time.

Teresa and Frank perform folk and fairy tales from around the world in a variety of settings. Accomplished instrumentalists and singers, they weave music and song throughout, encouraging audience participation and inviting listeners along for the richness of the story’s emotional journey. Teresa is from Kentucky where she grew up with a love of nature and an ear for plaintive melodies and story in song. She plays celtic harp and udu. Frank grew up in Baltimore and from an early age played in many musical groups celebrating the diversity of musical styles. He plays guitar, banjo and bass.
