An Evening of Old West Tales
Home Grown Hub, an alternative educational hub, brings the Summer Series of Story Telling to Tahoe. In an effort to rekindle the art of story telling and bring art and history together for a rip roarin’ good time, these free events captured a crowd of over fifty parents and children on opening night this past Thursday. Thanks to the Drescher family who hosted the evening of story telling–An Old West Revival, family and friends gathered for dinner and a show.
Tony Argento, Cowboy Poet, travels the West tellin’ tales of the old dusty days. He captured this audience with a story about tying the devil’s tail in knots, complete with sound effects and exaggerated enthusiasm brining the story to life. Aspiring Chautauqua children shared their insight for the level of commitment required to get on stage and speak a story from a historical person’s perspective. Followed by McAvoy Lane, who honored the guests with insight on the value for story telling. The evening proved a wonderful, learning experience for adults and children.
Home Grown Hub invites you to attend their Summer Series of Story Telling held every second Thursday of the month and each month is a new theme. June is dedicated to the Old World Days of Camelot. Evenings for story telling are an open mic venue with the invitation to speak your story or poem should you get the hankerin‘ for it. This is a picnic type venue with spirits offered for donation. Each month is hosted at a different location. Details are at www.homegrownhub.org.
