Newport Storytellers Podcast

  Look what we made!


The Newport Storytellers have created a podcast - an audio patchwork of stories told and music harvested from recordings created by the people of Newport, their friends and members of the Newport Fiddle and Folk Club. 

The Newport Storytellers podcast was created from the heart, during the time of Covid 19, by Matt McArthur, Jackie Kerin and Alan Davies using whatever methods worked on the day: phones, Zoom, USB mikes and tin cans and string.
 

The first episodes are available now, more are on the way. You can listen or download on the club website, and also find details of how to subscribe to the podcast. 

This listening adventure was supported by Hobsons Bay City City Council through its Quick Response Grants.

ENJOY!!

November 20: Newport Storytellers

 


* Our November photo was taken in one of the back lanes in Newport

Well can you believe it! It's November and it's our final gathering for 2020.

It's time for a break but with a promise to return in February 2021

We still have a treat for you between now and Christmas. A small group of us have been beavering away on a six part series of stories and songs, harvested from pre-Covid storytelling events and recordings made by members of the Newport Fiddle and Folk Club. Watch this space!

In the meantime, please join us; we want to hear what you've been up to in the past month, listen to your stories, poems and patter.

  • We ask that contributions be around the 6 minute mark
  • We've planned for an hour but if we're still enjoying ourselves and wish to go over - we will.
  • Musicians welcome; if you have patter or a story you wish to try out - we're all ears.
When you arrive we'll spend a few minutes writing down names and working out the running order and this will be posted on the chat stream. Please if you wish to tell a story, poem or simply share a work in progress,  arrive on time.
