Join us for a light-hearted evening of story and song at the Cabaret, our festival opener. 
Escape the busy world outside as you sit with friends, old and new, letting the stories and music soothe and uplift you!
Fall in love again
Fall in love again with timeless themes as Teresa Whitaker and Frank Schwarz share “Extraordinary Ordinary Stories and Songs.” These original offerings blend blues, jazz, Celtic and Appalachian folk music, and you’ll find yourself singing along!
Explore the roles of ancestral stories
Dovie Thomason will explore the roles of ancestral stories tangled with the Space Race and sci-fi through the eyes of an Indian child in Fifties America. She will have you laughing and marveling as she weaves these contrasting themes in her story, “Indian Space Cadet.”
See how our stories tell people who we are
Donald Davis will close the evening with the invitation to “Come Home with Me,” and see how our stories tell people who we are. No matter our age or background, we can find commond threads and build bridges of understanding.
Emcee for the evening’s festivities is Carol Glynn.
That’s just a taste of what’s to come. The weekend is full of inspiration and laugh s. Stay tuned for our weekly e-blasts!
