    Maine Storytelling

    On July 26th WERU held our 3rd annual Maine storytelling event at the Alamo Theatre in Bucksport, as part of that town’s Wednesday on Main summer series. The theme this year was “My Maine: The State as Experienced by Local Storytellers”. Today we bring you Act 2 which featured Amy Roeder, John & Katie Greenman, Brook Ewing Minner and Naomi Graychase.

    **The stories told by Brook Ewing Minner and Naomi Graychase were edited for length for the purposes of fitting into the Maine Currents time slot, but unedited versions of both of their stories are included here along with the archive of the Maine Currents show. The first file (below) is the complete show. The 2nd is Brook Ewing Minner’s unedited story and the 3rd is Naomi Graychase’s unedited story**

    This Solstice edition of Maine Currents features stories about holidays, families and winter in Maine. Rev. Dr. Anu Dudley (host of WERU’s “Earthwise” feature which airs Saturdays at 7:30) kicks things off with a look at the history of Solstice celebrations, then we hear from storytellers Marjorie Longwood of Surry, Edee Howland of Blue Hill, Cathy Mink of Waldo and Roger Sprague of Belfast. We close out the hour with some voices from the past- a 2006 holiday special recorded at WERU.

    Grab a cold drink and a comfortable seat – we’ve got another hour of great local storytelling for you this week! First you’ll hear 2 stories that were told at our Maine Summertime stories event at the Alamo Theatre in Bucksport last month by local storytellers Naomi Graychase and Amy Roeder. In the 2nd half of the show Roger Sprague – a Belfast resident who was born in that town in 1929 will share some memories and reflect on some of the changes he’s seen over the years.
    We start at the Alamo Theatre.
