  Storytelling in the Snug with MICHAEL PARENT

“…almost a festival in himself. He played, sang in French and English, and juggled balls, rods and what-nots as he simultaneously told the story of a down-and-out juggler.
A magnificent voice, an inexhaustible fund of stories, wit, charm…”
~UC Berkeley Daily Californian

  Storytelling in the Snug with Elizabeth Ellis and Loren Niemi

As a storyteller, Elizabeth Ellis doesn’t mince words. Filled with hilarious and poignant honesty, her stories deliver down-home wisdom, southern style. Hers is a voice that finds the heart and the funny bone, riveting audiences of every age wherever she goes.

Loren has spent more than a quarter century as a professional storyteller, creating, collecting, performing and teaching stories to audiences of all ages in urban and rural settings. His work has been called "post-modern", "with the dark beauty of language that is not ashamed of poetry."

There will be NO COVER CHARGE for this wonderful event, but we will "pass the hat" for Elizabeth and Loren that evening.

**PLEASE NOTE** Seating in the Snug is very limited. Come early to reserve your seats, have a meal in our dining room, and then retire with your drinks to the coziness of the Snug for storytelling!!

  Storytelling in the Snug with John Wyatt, the Appalachian!

John Wyatt, the Appalachian! Appalachian from the heart best describes John. His songs and stories of the mountains transport you back to another time and place. Wyatt’s music and storytelling celebrates the common bonds of faith and family and what it means to be Appalachian. His music has a hint of the old Carter style of playing with ballads of mountain life drawn from personal experience. Wyatt’s stories also come from those experiences of growing up in rural Appalachia in the 1950s and 1960s.

There will be NO COVER CHARGE for this wonderful event, but we will "pass the hat" for John that evening.
