Storytelling Arts of Indiana presents VISIT TO MY HOUSE ON THE MOUNTAIN With Josh Goforth
Storytelling Arts of Indiana will welcome back a Grammy-nominated master fiddler for its biggest fundraiser of the year, Talk of the Town. The “Storytelling Arts of Indiana” show on Saturday April 10, 2021 will be a vibrant mix of music and storytelling. As the governor relaxes some of the COVID-19 restrictions, they can put the show to a handful of social groups in the theater of the Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center’s theater for a handful of social groups, while the majority watch Zoom from their homes.
Mastering nearly 20 instruments, Josh Goforth is an old-time, bluegrass, and swing musician best known for playing the violin, which was featured in the Songcatcher feature film and in the PBS documentary Folkways: The Fiddle of the year 2000 can be seen. He has played in 49 states as well as Japan and across Europe. Goforth was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk Album “Cutting Loose” in 2009, his collaboration with David Holt.
His last show in Indianapolis, Come Sit in My Front Porch, was a fan favorite of our 2019 season. Because of his popularity, we invited him to lead our annual Talk of the Town fundraiser, which will include an online mission bid auction. Target group members can donate here or send “SAI” to 44-321 on their smartphone. With donations, we can continue to create environments where Hoosiers can hear and share stories and present storytellers who inspire diverse audiences.

Tickets are $ 35 for one person and online, $ 60 for a household, and can be purchased online at Storytellingarts.org.
