About AFTer Hours Adult Folktale Series:
AFTer Hours is an adult folktale telling series finding common ground in the deep, dark roots of the World Tree of folklore and folk music. Ancient yet fresh themes and situations speak to the depths and guts of the human experience. We haven’t found this space as we can imagine it, so we’re setting out to create that shared vision in our own community. We want people to be able to connect to old stories in new ways, and rediscover the pleasure of listening to narrative stories told by people who have really practiced their art. We also want to encourage people to participate in the making of art, through the open mic portion of our events. Telling folktales live in concert creates a shared space of universality and relevance to our life experience as adults coming to grips with the world.
