Saturday, March 29, 2014 will be another magical night in El Paso as the Junior League of El Paso, Inc. presents The Storytellers!
With a new set of artists, The Storytellers will be an unforgettable experience!
The Storytellers is a unique event featuring three acclaimed artists who share the stories behind their award-winning songs, and then perform them in an intimate, acoustical setting. This event provides the audience with an amazing opportunity to hear the meaning, personalities and stories behind the music, straight from the songwriters themselves. Knowing those stories, you never hear the music in quite the same way again. This special event appeals to men and women alike, to people who love any music genre, to people who love the deeper meaning of stories, and to people who want to help the Junior League continue its great work in the El Paso community. Funds raised at this event will be invested in the Junior League of El Paso Endowment Fund, and will be used to sustain, expand, and initiate the amazing community projects and programs presented by the Junior League of El Paso, Inc.
