    Join us for McCall’s favorite storytelling program inspired by Juneau’s popular and delightful Mudrooms. It kinda sounds like “stage fright,” but it’s a lot more fun! Here’s how it works: Seven storytellers are selected to regale the audience with a true personal tale. Each storyteller has EXACTLY seven minutes to tell his or her story. The theme for April is THE MOST AMAZING WOMAN I KNOW. Celebrate women during this month that honors the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage & the passing of the 19th Amendment! Storytellers will share their best stories about an amazing woman. From crass to delicate, told by wallflowers or clowns, live stories are mesmerizing and raw. This is not a theatrical performance, but real-life storytelling shared by friends, neighbors, visitors, and strangers. Hop onboard for an unpredictable wild-ride of an evening full of good old-fashioned storytelling fun! Seven tales - seven minutes - seven dollars! Income supports the McCall Arts and Humanities Council and the Alpine Playhouse. Register online to reserve a ticket, or . . . fill out an application to be a storyteller!

    If, as Ilya Kaminsky says, “Poetry . . .  exists above any speech,” how can we use attention to sound - the musicality and pacing of our language and our silences - to make our own written words (whether poetry or prose) stand out above ordinary speech? What does it mean to do so, while still keeping our own natural cadences and voices? How can we get sound working on the level of word or sentence or paragraph? In this interactive workshop aimed at ALL levels, we’ll closely read sonically-skilled writing samples from John Milton to Flannery O’Connor to Sylvia Plath to Danez Smith, AND we will do a range of writing exercises - from playing with the etymology of words to the wording of sentences to writing in meter to imitating pieces of music - to get a sense of how far sound can take us. As Jericho Brown says, “If you put language first, then you can discover your ideas. But if you’re thinking about your ideas first, then you’re going to be at the mercy of the language you already know.” Let’s try putting language/sound first, and see what exciting places it leads us.
    Alexandra Teague is an award-winning author of three collections of poetry - Or What We’ll Call Desire, The Wise and Foolish Builders, and Mortal Geography - and a novel, The Principles Behind Flotation. Her new book of poetry, Or What We’ll Call Desire, was recently praised in a New York Times review for its “exuberant pageants” of sentences, and she spent part of 2019 at the internationally-renowned Civitella Ranieri during an interdisciplinary arts residency. She is a professor in the MFA program at the University of Idaho, where she and her students recently completed a music-poetry collaboration with composer Ruby Fulton, the Decho Ensemble (saxophones), and Katherine Petersen (soprano). 
    A short break for lunch will be included each workshop day, so please plan to bring a lunch or to purchase one nearby.  Registration Required

Amy Canfield is a professor of history at Lewis-Clark State College. She earned her PhD from Washington State University in 2008. She teaches courses in women’s history, American Indian history, history of the American West, and US popular culture.  She has published articles in the Pacific Northwest Quarterly, Journal of the West, Idaho Yesterdays, and the Journal of American Culture, and has also served as a consultant for the Center for the State of the Parks, conducting cultural resource assessments on the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail, Grand Canyon National Park, Vicksburg National Military Park, and Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.

    Traditional folksongs are customary songs with unknown composers that were passed along orally from one generation to the next, prior to recording technology. Although many folksongs became known as popular songs, they are not considered commercial or classical in style. This presentation explores the origins and evolutions of traditional American folksongs that were recorded during the American Folk Music Revival of the 1940s-1960s. Songs recorded by artists such as Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly, Burl Ives, Joan Baez, Jean Ritchie, Bob Dylan, Odetta, Nina Simone, Pete Seeger and others will be explored and performed. Presenter Tracy Morrison is a folksinger-songwriter-storyteller and sixth generation Idaho native. She was raised on a small farm in rural southern Idaho with no access to television or radio - instead she spent leisure time with her family and community gathering for potlucks and song circles. Her songwriting explores culture, history, and life experience, and her musical style draws from American Root genres. The songs Tracy has written about historical Idaho (western) women feature Sacajawea, Polly Bemis, Sarah Winnemucca, Peg Leg Annie and many more. Tracy published a self-titled EP (2012) and two full-length albums of original music, Dancing Through Medbury (2014) and Heirloom (2018).
