Eastport Arts Center will host ‘Songs, Stories and Art—Lessons from Strangers’, a multimedia performance which combines original storytelling songs with a projected graphic story, on Friday, July 28 at 7 pm. Acoustic artist John John Brown, Kerrville New Folk winner, takes listeners inside the lives of 14 unique characters; Indonesian artist Sapri, working from afar with his collaborator has created illustrations inspired by the musical tales. The stories’ subjects include a Vietnam vet, a trumpet-playing orphan, a couple debating evolution, and a young man with mental illness wandering the aisles of Walmart.
Music Mecca calls the show “A melting pot of humor, longing, satire and hope,” and Americana UK applauds Brown’s work as “So well written that every song could be a short story.” More information about the show may be found here: https://johnjohnbrown.com/songs-stories-art, and a video trailer for the show, below:
