“Hootenanny” is a Scottish word meaning "celebration" or "party". Nowadays the word most commonly refers to a gathering of folks at which any and all are welcome to make an offering of about five minutes, of a song, story, poetry, spoken word, in front of an audience. No experience necessary.

Angela Lloyd, MFA is a Shambhala Art Teacher and a member of Shambhala. A student of Laura Simms, she started meditating at Laura Simms’ Annual Storytelling Residency in 1987. She began to study the Shambhala Art teachings in 1998. Her particular interest in the Shambhala Art teachings is how humor, silence and speech creates a safe container for inter-related arts experiences for body, mind and speech. Angela Lloyd (an element of surprise you can count on) is a master storyteller, musician, and an award-winning recording artist. https://www.angelalloyd.com (https://www.angelalloyd.com/)

* Good to bring a notebook or sketchbook… and on this day, a musical instrument!
