Story Slam Bangor happens one night a month in the Orono/Bangor area and was started by Anya Rose, Jesse Moriarity and Zack Pike who were brought together by a shared love of NPR’s The Moth. The concept is simple: 50 or 60 people get together each month at a local venue and tell stories based on a theme. Not everyone tells a story, some folks just come and listen. Those who opt to tell a story throw their name in a hat and 10 names are chosen at random to tell their story. There is a 5 or 6 minute time limit and at the end the audience gets to vote for their favorite story of the evening. The winner receives a fabulous prize. Story Tellers have come from all walks of life to share their stories. The stories are sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and always very poignant. This event brings about a better understanding of ourselves as people, and builds an amazing sense of community, so what’s not to love about that?

We are also lucky that Molly Webster has found time in her busy, busy schedule to once again squeeze in a show at Stillwater Artsapalooza! Molly is a local vocal talent originally from Patten, Maine. She attended the University of Maine and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education and Vocal Performance and a Master’s degree in Choral Conducting. She currently owns a private voice studio in the Bangor area where she teaches all styles of music. She is incredibly excited to be a part of the first annual Stillwater Artsapalooza and will be performing varied works from Gershwin to Adele to The Decemberists. This promises to be an excellent display of incredible talent and we are grateful to have Molly performing once again at The Roost from 7-7:40p.m. on Saturday, June 23.
