Storytelling rides again

Southern Oregon’s “The Hearth” and Portland’s “Back Fence”.

The newest rage in communication and entertainment is also the oldest. Storytelling events—flesh-and-blood storytellers spinning yarns to flesh-and-blood audiences actually sitting in the same room, with no technology beyond a simple microphone—are selling out in communities large and small. We find out why, and enjoy a good story or two.

    I have been inspired by many of your programs. The show on January 30th 2015 about storytelling has struck a cord in our dream at via Via Chiara Sanctuary in the Applegate.
    Thank you so much for sharing such inspiring stories. I will contact The Hearth and who knows maybe a similar gathering place will sprout in the Applegate Valley.

    Take Care,
