TIME: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
LOCATION: Birthplace of Country Music Museum
Do you have a theme song? A concert story that shook your very soul? A make out or break up ballad that seems to play at just the right time? The record you played until you wore the grooves out? A band that changed your life? A tale about that time at that music festival? Maybe it was the slow dance with your prom date? Your church hymns? That punk band you started in your parent’s basement? A story about the way music maybe, just maybe, saved your life?
On Nov. 16, Hoot and Holler will gather to honor those stories in a lively, rollicking, poignant, and life affirming way at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum.
Hoot and Holler is a live storytelling event series based out of Roanoke, Va. If you are a fan of NPR’s The Moth, This American Life, Mortified, and other storytelling events and podcasts, then you will love being a part of Hoot and Holler. We build up our community by encouraging all people to step up and share their stories in a supportive, diverse, and empowering format. We believe that all stories matter and that all people have thousands of stories within them to tell.
A little Vaudeville, a smidge of irreverent rock ‘n’ roll, a dash of freakshow, a heap of hilarity, and a massive infusion of soul, Hoot and Holler will restore faith in the way we, as humans, share and listen to stories.
***Interested in submitting a story pitch to be considered as a storyteller? We ask for a detailed outline to be submitted in a private message through the Hoot and Holler Facebook Messenger. Deadline for submissions is Oct. 10.
We look for a beginning, middle, and end, lots of juicy details, humor and truth, conviction and confidence, and the willingness to step up in all of your brave glory to share your story.
