ABOUT THE ARTIST

Genre: Storytelling

Story Jam uniquely combines live storytelling with original music written exclusively for each story.

This special show will honor the work of MLK with premiere national storytellers—including the magnificent Shannon Cason (popular host of NPR’s Homemade Stories and The Trouble); the renowned Mama Edie Armstrong, who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. himself; the phenomenal Archy Jamjun; the beloved, local powerhouse diva Lynne Jordan; the hilarious Jeremy Owens; and the ever-endearing Nestor Gomez (who has won more Moth Slams and Grand Slams than anyone alive).

Story Jam features Chicago’s most exceptional, diverse stars of the live lit and music stages of Chicago. The 10-piece band echoes each story with a custom song, created just for the stories. This original concept is the product of producer/host Stephanie Rogers, who studied theatre at Northwestern, and is currently writing her master’s thesis on live lit for the Written Communications program at National Louis University.

Story Jam is committed to diversity and community, and is best suited for those 17 and older.
