Talkers & Workshops

    Part of the heritage portion of the Memphis Music & Heritage Festival which we celebrate and cherish includes one devoted to the spoken word. This includes workshops conducted by musicians as well as a chance for us to meet local storytellers. More traditionally, though, the spoken word is passed along through “talkers”- local treasures who tell their stories whether it may be a tall tale or a family yarn.
