Steve Itterly with Tad Kroening

Steve Itterly draws from a deep well of American musical traditions to create distinctively personal music that is timeless without being overly nostalgic.

Hailing from New York, Steve’s musical journey began in his early teens when his father and brother introduced him to Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Robert Johnson, and Blind Willie Johnson to name a few. There was something mystical in the raw passion of the guitar and vocals that moved him deeply. Steve spent hours with his ear pressed against the stereo speakers trying to learn each note.

Steve’s musical style is true to form with his passionate vocals, finger-style prowess, and ripping slide guitar. He has shared a bill with greats such as Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, Steve Winwood, Jack Broadbent, Anders Osborne, and Benjamin Booker.

Steve will be joined by Bellingham gent and songbard Tad Kroening.

Drunken Storytellers

Drunken Storytellers are Matney Cook, Mikey Eldred, Tad Kroening, and Stone Jones. Pairing off by random draw, it's an in-the-round style where each performer first tells a story then sings a song. Heckling during the story is highly encouraged from the crowd, bartender, other performers, etc. Once the song starts, all heckling ceases unless part of the song. Spend this first Friday in June with laughter, libations, and music.

Gather Round: True Stories Told Live

Join Bellingham's monthly forum for people who love a good story. If you haven't been with us before, here's the scoop: Gather Round is inspired by The Moth, the New York based non-profit dedicated to "true stories told live." We believe that nothing binds a community together like shared stories. Our format is Open Mic: prospective tellers prepare a story based on the evening’s theme and submit their names before the show starts. Our rules are simple: 

1. Stories must be true and personal, that is, they must relate something that actually happened, and that directly affected the teller. 
2. Stories must be told, not read -- they must be performed without notes.
3. Stories last approximately 5-8 minutes. 

We're committed to creating a safe and supportive environment for all sorts of stories to be shared. Funny stories, sad stories, stories about small triumphs or epic defeats; stories about friends, about families, about the search for love or justice; stories about the human condition and how we cope with it on any given day. Come tell us a story, or just sit back and listen as others share theirs.

One more thing: our space is small and seating is limited -- come early to get a good spot!

Irish & Folk Mondays - West of Roan

Drawing inspiration from old myths and legends, Channing Showalter & Annie Schermer create performances using the methods of song and puppetry.  Stories, songs, and tunes that tell tales of human triumphs, failures, demons, love, and the endless quest for home and family. By using light and shadows to set the scene, their puppets walk, swim, and fly within and between the topside world and the one below- where creatures and intricacies of the subconscious live.
