Mama Edie McLoud Armstrong is a bilingual storyteller and percussionist. Her travels have taken her to Trinidad, Ghana, Togo, Benin, South Africa, Mexico, India, the Bahamas and Iraq. Whether fun and frolicky, or somber and serene, her wisdom folktales, historical, and personal stories encourage self-love, social justice, and personal empowerment.

Tim Livengood learned to tell stories listening to vinyl LPs on a record player. He has told at festivals in the Mid-Atlantic, in homes, schools, parks, planetariums, and at the summit of an extinct volcano (just to pass the time). Astronomy sometimes finds its way into Tim’s original stories, and other adventures in science (gone wrong!) can appear here and there.

Celebrate the Timeless Art of Storytelling, with Truths, Folktales, Rumors, and everything in between. Traditional or True its up to you! Join us at our Open Mic and set your story free.
