Portland Story Theater
Urban Tellers was Fabulous!
What a great audience we had last Friday. Thank you for buying your tickets in advance, although we did manage to find a seat for everyone who showed up. It was packed!  

The theme that emerged, Game Changer, resonated with the tellers and the listeners. Thanks to tellers Tamara Lynne, Lynn St. Georges, Chere Weiss (the Zydeco demo was spectacular!), Keith Cantrell, Caryl Taylor, and Jerry Shifman.  

We had a special guest in the audience, Melanie Tait of ABC Radio Australia's Now Hear This. What a delightful opportunity to share our work.
