VIRTUAL EVENT: The Scarborough Art and Lecture Series presents Adam Booth
|Date||October 22, 2020|
|Start Time||7:00 pm|
Grab a cup of tea and get cozy as local storyteller and musician Adam Booth offers a virtual presentation on the art of storytelling – and perhaps tells a few stories of his own!
Adam Booth’s original stories blend traditional mountain folklore, music, and an awareness of contemporary Appalachia. A nationally touring artist, his professional telling appearances include premiere storytelling events across the United States, such as the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival, the International Storytelling Center, the National Storytelling Festival, the Appalachian Studies Association Conference, the National Storytelling Conference, the National Academy of Medicine, and as a Spoken Word Resident at the Banff Centre (Alberta, Canada). He is a member of the Recording Academy and his recordings have received a Parents’ Choice Gold Award, two Parents’ Choice Silver Honors, and four Storytelling World Awards and Honors. He is a four-time champion of the West Virginia Liars’ Contest.
Adam is an adjunct instructor of Appalachian studies at Shepherd University and is the founding artistic director of the Speak Story Series, now in its eighth season. Adam is most at home sharing stories and music with the next generation of listeners and tellers throughout Appalachia.
This event will take place via Zoom. Instructions will be sent upon registration.
