CD RELEASE CONCERT 


TO BENEFIT 


SWANNANOA VALLEY CHRISTIAN MINISTRY


Sat August 30th  7:30pm
Tickets: $15  


Both Brames have a long history of music making and service in the area. Renae was for many years the highly respected supervisor of the Black Mountain Correctional Center for Women, where she gained recognition for launching innovative programs aimed at helping inmates transition successfully back to community life. Jamie is on the staff at the Christmount Christian Assembly, where he coordinates camps and conferences, leads worship, and trains and supervises camp staff. The talented duo perform together frequently, their voices blending above Renae’s guitar and Jamie’s mandolin in folk-inspired original songs.

The concert’s beneficiary, the Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministry, has seen its resources stretched by an increased demand for services in the current economic climate. The organization offers assistance in meeting both basic and emergency needs in an atmosphere of compassion, love, hope and encouragement. The SVCM also offers help in job placement, training and educational advancement.








A Lighthearted Evening of Storytelling
MICHAEL BURCH
DEBBIE GURRIERE
PETE KOSCHNICK

Sun Aug 31st  7:30pm
Tickets: $10 

Come enjoy an evening of humorous tales and stories including regional stories, folk tales, wild lies and personal stories. Some of the stories will be accompanied by guitar and banjo.

"Ever since humans have had a voice, they’ve used the medium of storytelling to help them understand their feelings, the world around them and their place within it. Storytelling is an art form that requires more than a voice that resonates with feeling. Storytelling conveys messages through a narrative that comes alive with the telling.
In his book Letting Stories Breathe, Arthur Frank writes: “Stories work with people, for people, and on people, affecting what people are able to see as real, as possible, and as worth doing or best avoided. Human life depends on the stories we tell: the sense of self that those stories impart, the relationships constructed around shared stories, and the sense of purpose that stories both propose and foreclose.”                    ------Michael Burch
