One night about 5 years ago my friend Avery Hill and I conceived of a show we called the 'Front Porch', which was a blend of our best songs and our favorite stories. Ultimately the 'Front Porch' show morphed into a extensive month long tour that rolled from town to town across the Midwest. We had a ton of fun on that tour. It was soulful, spontaneous, joyful and was as much of a conversation with the audience as it was a 'show.'
A few autumns ago, I met Mary Anne Moorman, aka 'Auntmama', an acclaimed storyteller extraordinaire from Seattle. Her storytelling show was fantastic. And when she said «every story I tell is better when it begins and ends with a song» the ‘Stories We Could Tell’ show was born. A blend of timeless stories from 'Auntmama' plus more stories and songs from Avery and myself. It's the 'Front Porch' show expanded---it in new and really exciting way.
The ‘Stories We Could Tell’ show will be funny, captivating, heartwarming, and spontaneous---a one of a kind event at Artichoke and a night to remember!!!
