The Ark’s 2022 Storytelling Festival on February 26 features six local and regional storytellers, presenting a sampler of styles and story types. The program celebrates diversity in the art of story, and includes true personal stories, tall tales, folk tales, a story from literature, and a couple of songs from the folk tradition. This program not only entertains, it also gives a window into the reason that the oral tradition of storytelling is the most enduring adventure in human history.
Storytellers include four members of the Ann Arbor Storytellers Guild – Steve Daut, MC, Lorelle Otis, Jane Fink, and Rich Swanson. In addition, we are delighted to welcome Barbara Schutzgruber from the Lansing Storytellers, and Larry Castleberry from the Detroit Association of Black Storytellers as featured storytellers tonight.
Also available as a Virtual concert on our Facebook Live page and YouTube channel. Free! Tip jar available.
