Two Great Storytellers, One Great Evening
It’s rare that you get a chance to experience and learn about great songwriting plus great short story writing all in one evening.
But thanks to Press 53, and two incredible storytellers you can enjoy just such an experience plus beer, wine and a delicious meal if you’d like at The Community Arts Café in downtown Winston-Salem. Two Great Storytellers, One Great Evening is this Friday night, February 22 at 7:30pm (6:30pm if you’d like dinner as well). Tickets are just 10 dollars.
North Carolina Arts Council Fellowship for Songwriting recipient Jeffrey Dean Foster has been releasing amazing songs since he and his band were first signed to Arista Records in the mid-80s. He’s currently working on a new soon-to-be-released album sampled in today's show. Jeffrey’s good friend, Ray Morrison, is an award-winning author. His debut collection of short stories In a World of Small Truths published by Press 53 was called “surprising with subtlety and strength” by HBO’s True Blood executive story editor and Showtime’s Weeds co-producer Chris Offutt. You can hear Ray reading from his book, Jeffrey singing from his new album, and then chat with them both after the show. They stopped by WFDD's studios to chat with David Ford.
