20th Anniversary Celebration...Wow! What a night!

Tuesday, February 7, 2012 - It was twenty years ago today, that Brother Blue and Ruth taught the band to play (not really). But, it really has been 20 years of weekly Tuesday Night Storytelling. So we celebrated with Brother Blue's very first Featured Performer ever, Jay O'Callahan , and some other special guests! It all started promptly at 7pm at the Harvard-Epworth United Medthodist Church, 1555 Mass Ave., Cambridge (just above Harvard Sq. & the Cambridge Common). Tickets: $15 in Advance, $20 at the Door.  Click for Event Parking information. (And what a great night it turned out to be--so, whether you were there or not--you'll want to get a DVD, expertly recorded by Cambridge Communtity Television!)

Boston Area Monthly Potluck & StorySwap...

This is one of the oldest Storytelling communities in the Country. It grew out of a storytelling event held on the Cambridge Common back in the summer of 1976, as part of the Bicentennial. Attendees had such a good time, they went out for dinner afterwards, and agreed to keep meeting on a monthly basis. Every month, usually on the first Sunday (unless there's a holiday), the group meets at the home of a volunteer host, somewhere in the Boston area. After a hearty potluck dinner, the chairs are put in a circle, and the Storytelling begins. Depending on attendance, the time limit varies, but it's usually at least 10 - 12 minutes. It is a warm, supportive environment for Tellers of all abilities, and feedback is by request only. For more information, or to get on the mailing list, contact Miriam.


CT Storytelling Festival and Conference...

The 31st Annual Connecticut Storytelling Festival will be held at Connecticut College in New London, Conn., on Saturday, April 28, 2012. Eshu Bumpus and Motoko will be the Headliners. They'll be joined by many wonderful regional tellers. It will be a day full of performances, workshops, and opportunities to connect with other Storytellers and Educators. Some events traditionally associated with the Festival will be occurring in other parts of Connecticut throughout March and April.
