Storyteller & Musician Adam Booth to Speak at Shepherd University

boothStory teller and musician Adam Booth, also an adjunct faculty member at Shepherd University, is scheduled to discuss the creative process behind his new CD, “The Mountain Came Alive: Creating Contemporary Music and Stories Rooted in Traditional Appalachia,” at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, September 17, in Reynolds Hall as part of Shepherd’s Common Reading Program.

Aimed at young people and their family communities, Booth’s latest tale is an interwoven tapestry of story and music that tells the last year in the life of an Appalachian mountain. The album draws upon traditional musical styles and folklore to create a contemporary Appalachian perspective of community and place.

Topics include conceiving the story, structural design, creating the music and working with the community to record it, all based on observations made living and working in Appalachia. The presentation will include live performances of music and story from the album.

Booth is a multiple award-winning young Appalachian storyteller and musician. He is a four-time champion of the West Virginia Liars’ Contest and winner of storytelling competitions in three other states. His first storytelling album, “The Mingo Black,” received honors at the 2013 Storytelling World Awards and was juried into Tamarack, the Best of West Virginia. He is a recipient of the National Storytelling Network’s J.J. Reneaux Mentorship Grant to work with Dovie Thomason. He has appeared at festivals and venues around the country, including the National Storytelling Festival Exchange Place, The National Storytelling Conference and New Mexico’s Ghost Ranch.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, go to www.shepherd.edu/commonreading or call 304-876-5461.

  10. Thanks for your posting. I would also like to say that the very first thing you will need to accomplish is to see if you really need repairing credit. To do that you have got to get your hands on a duplicate of your credit history. That should really not be difficult, because the government necessitates that you are allowed to have one cost-free copy of the credit report each year. You just have to consult the right men and women. You can either look into the website for your Federal Trade Commission or perhaps contact one of the major credit agencies right away.

  33. Thanks for your blog post. A few things i would like to add is that personal computer memory is required to be purchased if your computer can’t cope with everything you do along with it. One can deploy two RAM boards having 1GB each, for example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should check the car maker’s documentation for own PC to make certain what type of memory space is needed.
