Event Description

Hettie Farley Barnes is an Appalachian teller with one foot in Sweet Virginia and the other in the Granite State. A refreshing dose of Southern wit, wisdom and charm!


Hettie has spent most of her life in the mountain areas of Southwest Virginia, East Kentucky and East Tennessee, a true native Appalachian who loves storytelling.  However, her stories are from  the mountains, the sea and the world.  She comes from a long line of storytellers; teachers, preachers, lawyers and insurance agents- all making their living with their passion for a good “yarn”.  Over 15 years Ago, Hettie began storytelling in schools, churches and festivals  with focus on entertaining and igniting passion for those listening to tell their own stories.


Hosted By: Bruce Marcus 

Don't forget:  Every Tuesday night is Story Space.

The evening will begin with our usual Open Mic.  Tellers have eight minutes to share a story.  First-time tellers are guaranteed a spot and listeners are always welcome.  

The feature begins around 8:15.  


The venue is handy to Central Square and the Out of the Blue Gallery is a feast for the senses that encourages all  forms of creativity.  There is a $5 suggested donation.  The funds help to ensure that our weekly gatherings will continue, as they have for almost 22 years
