Stereo Stories concerts are based around stories that, mostly, are first published on this website. For performance, the stories are edited to make room for The Stereo Stories Band to weave in and out of the narration of the story. Many established and emerging writers have been part of our shows since our debut in 2014. Some have been invited for particular concerts. Others have been invited by writers’ festivals to be part of our show. All are part of the Stereo Stories collective that celebrates story and song. Each year we seem to add a few more names to the guest list.
