An evening of stories and songs about Mother Earth featuring two fantastic women, Heather Forest and Beth Horner. Both artists are recipients of the Circle of Excellence Award for artistry in performance presented by the National Storytelling Network.
Heather Forest is a modern-day bard, who wrote and composed “EARTHSONG,” a musical monologue about planetary ecology. The musical compositions and evocative storytelling take listeners through the cosmological, geological, and anthropological history of life on Earth. “EARTHSONG” won the Best Composer Award in the United Solo Festival in New York. Storyteller Antonio Sacre called it, “a meticulously crafted, exquisitely performed, and incredibly timely piece of art that the world needs right now.” Visit her website.
Beth Horner will tell an inspiring, humorous, musical tale of one city’s triumph over sewage, “The Pipeline Blues.” With a comedic sensibility and energetic style, Horner’s stories range from her hysterical childhood farmyard escapades to a side-splitting, bawdy spoof on romance novels, to her great-great grandfather’s Civil War diary.
