Bob Reiser will join April 5 Song & Story Swap
Please come share in an evening of music and stories at the Pioneer Valley Folklore Society Song & Story Swap.
Saturday, April 5, 7:00 p.m. at the The Nacul Center, 592 Main St., Amherst, Mass (see map).
Guest performers for the event will be author and storyteller Bob Reiser.
At the University of Chicago, and the Yale School of Drama he developed a love of theater and writing. Then, during the 70s, after a stint at Second City, his neglected political roots woke up. The Vietnam War brought him into the streets, performing a Guerrilla Theater piece, "Brother You’re Next."
Bob Reiser co-founded the National Writers Union and has written two books with folksinger Pete Seeger, entitled Carry it On and Everybody Says Freedom.
For 20 years he has been telling stories and giving workshops around the continent, from Maine to Jonesborough to Vancouver, teaching at a community college and doing his best to open people’s hearts, minds and spirits, one audience at a time.
Pete Seeger observed, "Bob Reiser is a wonderful storyteller, with tales for every age and temperament. I hope he keeps on for another half century."
