East Side Storytellin'

 

 

East Side Storytellin’ is a bi-monthly live event that we record and edit into an hour long podcast/radio show.  Recorded live every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month, Chuck Beard brings together and hosts local writers and musicians in a spectacular show that lets the talent do all of the shining.  The writers read their original works, beginning promptly at 7pm, and then are followed by original storyteller sets of music by the featured musicians.  After the last note is played, Chuck gathers up all of the featured artists of the night and moderates a casual conversation about the guests’ creative processes, artistic journeys, and special ties to the Nashville area.  It is generally over by 8:30pm, FREE to attend, and a great time had by all present (there is also artist merch, food, and spirits to purchase each round while you enjoy the show).  Beginning in November of 2012, East Side Storytellin’ has consistently showcased the best of what Nashville is about to everyone taking a break from their busy lives to join in the fun.  We hope you make it to one or both or all of the shows coming up listed below.
