Music and storytelling are two sides of the same coin. Each is rooted in a personal truth and carries its own distinct rhythm and universal language. With such a wide variety of melodies, manuscripts & oral recordings to choose from, one is bound to find something that resonates within. Music and storytelling continue to allow us to connect with unknown worlds and individuals; relive forgotten moments, work though our emotions. Some elements frighten us, while others grab on tight to our curiosities imploring us to go beyond our comfort zones.
Speaking of comfort & curiosity, who’s in the mood for an evening of fresh tunes and tales? Ex Fabula and Milwaukee band Panalure are delighted to team up once again to present Cabin Fever, Songs for a Cold Winter Night. Join us February 13th at Anodyne Coffee Roasting Co., for a night of true, personal stories accompanied by original acoustic music from Panalure. This event was a HUGE success last year so be sure to get your tickets early! Grab your tickets today! Satisfy your curiosities about storytelling & StorySlams by clicking here.
