We’re mastering the art of ZOOM
Jackie Kerin (Newport Storytellers) and Greg Jenkins (Open Stage) invite you to a special one-off combined Storytelling and Music ZOOM evening.
Greg hosts Newport Open Stage – a chalkboard for musicians - every month for the Newport Fiddle and Folk Club and Jackie co-ordinates the storytelling wing of the Club. Following this event, they will return to running their separate evenings with confidence and ZOOM flair!
DATE: Friday 17th April
TIME: 7.30 – 8.45 (we will offer to extend the time for people who still have energy to share and chat however the ‘formalities’ will be 75 minutes).
THE VIRTUAL CHALK BOARD
Jackie and Greg will have a space for about 7 musicians and 5 storytellers
· Musicians have a max of 4 minutes to introduce and share
· Storytellers/spoken word people have 6 minutes max
· And your hosts have a gong!
When you arrive they will spend 5 minutes writing down your name and working out the running order and this will be posted on the chat stream. Please if you wish to perform arrive on time.
