Hoot and Holler, “Y’all Come Eat: Stories of Supper and Salvation”

Hoot and Holler, “Y’all Come Eat: Stories of Supper and Salvation”

Food is the great unifier of humans. It is the great equalizer. If you are from the south, you know that no gathering can happen without eating. From weddings to wakes, cakewalks to casseroles,  farming to foraging, Sunday supper to Saturday’s big game, church potlucks to backyard keggers, birthdays to baby showers, Thanksgiving feasts to TV dinners, Granny’s garden to Paw Paw’s 8-point buck, the fabric of our lives is often woven around these visceral memories of food.

Tonight’s stories will honor and celebrate our connectedness with food and how some of our greatest stories can happen around the kitchen table.

Interested in being a teller?
We’d love to hear from you!

In order to be considered for a coveted slot, we ask that you submit your story in writing in a private message to Hoot and Holler. We look for courage and conviction, humor and humility, truth and consequences, and a beginning, middle, and end.

What compels you to want to share your story? Dazzle us with the juicy details. We love to be surprised! Themes are purposely designed to be open to interpretation, so follow your gut and send us your pitch!

A little Vaudeville, a smidge of irreverent rock and roll, a dash of freak show, a heap of hilarity, and a massive infusion of soul, Hoot and Holler will restore faith in the way we, as humans, share and listen to stories.

Testimonials

My first foray into Hoot and Holler was a breathtaking experience. The sometimes visceral, often profane and absolutely funny tales were wonderful. They ran the gamut from sex to religion to love to school daze. A brilliant evening! I want MORE!!!!

Bob M.I want more

Two weeks ago I took my (adult) kids to a Moth Story Slam in Asheville. We all agreed that last night's edition of Hoot and Holler was much better. Well done story tellers!

Richard W.Well Done!

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell my story. I've always felt out of place, shy, and awkward....through this life changing experience I am finding my tribe and could not be happier for it. Forever and ever thank you, thank you for helping me find my voice.

K. C. RoanokeThanks!
