Words to live by and music to love! It's all here Labor Day weekend. Two days of music, storytelling, and workshops provided by professional performers from all over the country.

Please limit stories – or portions of stories – to eight minutes.

  Storytelling in the Snug with Margaret Burk, Janice Del Negro and Megan Wells

ROADS:
highways, crossroads and thoroughfares from one place to another.

Hitch a ride with Margaret Burk, Janice Del Negro and Megan Wells  as they put their story metal to the performance pedal with personal narrative, folktale and myth. All new construction: smooth pavement - great views!


There will be NO COVER CHARGE for this wonderful event, but we will "pass the hat" for these great tellers 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!!

Reservations for dinner and storytelling or for storytelling alone are strongly recommended.
