Roadhouse Storytellers®

Pittsboro Roadhouse General StoreI am the producer of Roadhouse Storytellers® at the renowned Pittsboro Roadhouse on US 64 in downtown Pittsboro. These storytelling shows are at 7 PM on the third Wednesdays of odd-numbered months (except July). The storytelling venue includes full meal service and a full bar, so plan to get there before 6:30 to order your dinner and first round of drinks before the stories begin. There is no cover charge, but there will be a tip bucket. Our storytellers tell family-friendly true tales, tall tales fairy tales, myths, and histories. What a night on the town in Pittsboro, NC!

Public Storytelling History

Sam Pearsall Storyteller Sam Stories
My public storytelling history began in 2013 when, shortly after retiring, I entered the Monti Story Slam in Durham, NC and won twice a row. This really inspired me to work hard at becoming a good public teller of tales. I was a featured teller at the Monti twice after that and came in third in the Monti Grand Slam in 2014. Since then, I’ve been a regular featured teller at Front Porch Stories in Raleigh and on the Bynum Front Porch in Bynum. I was a New Voice at the Stone Soup Festival in 2017 and will be again in 2018. I have told at several non-profit organization events, retirement homes, and an assortment of other storytelling events, all for the single-minded purpose of making people happier. I plan to continue on this course until I can’t get up the stairs to the stage.

Meanwhile, in March 2017, I founded the Roadhouse Storytellers® at the Pittsboro Roadhouse in Pittsboro, NC. I produce this series on a bimonthly basis, emcee most of the events, and tell at most of them. In its first year, the Roadhouse Storytellers® featured 26 storytellers from NC and neighboring states.
