Storytelling: Attention Local Region Readers!

To all my blog friends in the region of Southeast Ohio and western West Virginia (and any of you looking for a little weekend trip):

Fun times ahead! I will be performing this coming Saturday night at ArtsWest Theater in Athens, Ohio. Appearing with me is the group Wormz and the Decomposers and Thomas Burnett of the Appalachian Ohio Storytelling Project. The show starts at 7:00pm and combines two art forms that dance well together: storytelling and music.

About Wormz and the Decomposers, from their website at ReverbNation

"Nestled in the Appalachian foothills of Athens, Ohio, singer/songwriter Megan Wormz Bihn meets mandolin madman Adam Graham and bass lady Dawn Graham. Three part harmonies and mandolin breakouts weave around lyrics inspired by a raw love for the land and it's people. Together they offer a playful dance of personal stories, journeys, passions, and beautiful connections to the natural world.

Living a vagabond lifestyle, Wormz has been writing and performing live since 2006 around campfires, in coffee shops, at festivals, in desert squat towns, and in living rooms around the country. She started playing with Adam in 2009 and released the album Little Birdie in summer of 2011. Dawn joined the band earlier that year, and the trio is currently working on their next full-length album due out in early 2013." (photo from
Thomas Burnett is the founder of the Appalachian Ohio Storytelling Project. His mission is to preserve and promote stories and storytelling in the Appalachian region of Ohio, and his love is the combination of stories and music based in our rich Appalachian heritage and culture. 
If you're a blog reader, you know my background; if you are new to my blog, you can read about me on the About Granny Sue tab and the A Little About Me tab above. I am excited about being part of the show at ArtsWest with these performers and I know it's going to be a rollicking good time.

Tickets are available from me or Thomas Burnett or at the door. I hope to see some of you there!

Would be fun to attend. Perhaps you'll have a write-up about the show afterwards. Hope so -- barbara

Barbara, I will certainly do that. I am really looking forward to the performance--it's energizing to work with artists new to me.
