1st Person, Plural - the art of storytelling

This series gives accomplished storytellers who've honed their craft at the story slams a chance to stretch out and tell more elaborate stories.  We also intend to mix things up in the performance community by bringing in talented out-of-town tellers, and including one performer who's not a storyteller - like a writer, a musician or a comedian.

Co-producer, Norah Dooley said, "The art of storytelling goes deep and wide into our human imaginations.  The 5 minute slam stories are but a gateway 'drug'. And we aim to addict for life."

Susan Cattaneo with special guest Kenny White CD Release

Cattaneo knows how to craft a lyric and pen a hook, to marry lyric and melody. On her albums, she says, “I did mainstream country songs I originally wrote for others, and I found myself a mainstream country artist. The single ‘Girls Night Out’ from ‘Heaven to Heartache’ charted. Some people wanted another single like that. And I wondered, ‘Is that really me?’” The answer she came up with: Not quite. The music she’s pursuing now is going down a darker, more brooding path.
