I am the producer of Roadhouse Storytellers® at the renowned Pittsboro Roadhouse on US 64 just west of the square in downtown Pittsboro. There is ample parking across the street. 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. Every story brings a smile, a twinkle, a tear, an “ah-ha” or all of them. What a night on the town in Pittsboro, NC!
May 16th, 2018 event from 7 – 9pm
This event will feature five storytellers including myself. I will also emcee the show.
Ken Grant brings his rich background of experiences from growing up on a Louisiana farm, working as a deckhand on Mississippi riverboats, pipeline construction, and 21 years in the US Army to the stage with as many twists and turns as the rivers he worked.
Joan Leotta has been fascinated with story since first listening to her Grandma tell tall tales about family life. Joan is a novelist, poet, journalist and performer. Many of her tales, family and folk, involve strong women and the delights of food and fellowship. Pull up a chair and get ready to laugh as you listen….and you might want to jot down a few recipes.
Steve Tate grew up on an Illinois corn farm surrounded by family storytellers. He has lived and worked in many places (including England) as a pastor, marriage & family therapist, and since 1995 as a goat cheese dairy farmer operating the award-winning GOAT LADY DAIRY in Randolph County. These experiences are fertile ground for his unique stories.
Terri Ingalls has told stories at libraries, retirement homes, and festivals. She is a tour guide in both Mount Airy and Pilot Mountain, NC, leading Ghost Tours and Mystery Tours. In August she will premier her one-woman show, “Flights of Imagination” – the saga of her three years as a stewardess for Piedmont Airlines in the 60’s.
Sam Pearsall, tonight’s emcee and final story teller, grew up on screened porch stories in Nashville, TN. He is a retired ecologist and conservation scientist, who makes glass art, plays hand drums, volunteers for Hospice, and tells stories. Sam’s stories are true tales and tall tales based on personal experiences. Sam’s motto: With every good story, the further in you go, the bigger it gets.
