Here’s the Story: An evening of storytelling and participatory music making!


This evening I’ll be gathering with some amazing storytellers and people from all over Chicago at Theater Wit to exchange stories, share some delicious food, and play/sing a song together.

Here’s the Story is this amazing not-for-profit bringing together Chicago’s various creative communities, creating opportunities for connection, and fostering the art of storytelling and listening. They  provide a platform of support for the work of known and developing storytellers, monologists, and solo performers. It’s pretty amazing.

If you have the evening free and want to mingle and meet some really swell people from all walks of life AND join in some participatory music making then you should drop by and check it out! Hope to see you there, if not tonight, perhaps another month.
