Storynight on tap
PORT TOWNSEND — First Friday Storynight is back at Better Living Through Coffee, 100 Tyler St., from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight [April 4].
Join the Mythsinger Foundation, hostess Aimée Ringle and Bellingham's own bard, Harper Stone, for another evening of “spitfire, ants-in-your-dance stories.”
There is a suggested donation of $10, but no one will be turned away.
Ringle and Stone swap seats as teller and musical accompanist throughout the evening.
This monthly event explores the art and ritual of the oral tradition: sharing the old myths, folk tales and fairy tales along with more modern stories and personal sharings.
There is also an open-mic portion of the evening for audience members to share their short stories, songs, dances and poems.
