Another year has flown by, and in a few short weeks we’ll be kicking off the 2013 Montana Storytelling Roundup, April 26-27th in Cut Bank, Montana. As always, we’ll begin the week by taking artists, writers and musicians out to every school in Glacier County, a project that becomes increasingly vital as budget cuts eliminate more and more of the arts programs.
On the weekend we provide an opportunity for children and adults to enjoy and rub elbows with our presenters and performers. Keep checking back as we’ll be adding information about this year’s line up in the coming days.
We are proud to announce that the Montana Centennial Quilt will be on display at this year’s Roundup in affiliation with the Story Quilt Project.
Jean Wakely will be doing a presentation that also includes the Purple Sandwich Quilt and the Kids Say the Darndest Things Quilt, the last created by Jewel Wolk.
And once again we are honored to feature Tim Joyner’s art work, and Tim in person doing a quick draw during our Friday night program. The picture he creates will be raffled off to a lucky recipient at the close of our Saturday show. You’ll also have an opportunity to view the finished product of his major project, a bronze sculpture titled Buffalo Story.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2013 Montana Storytelling Roundup at the Cut Bank High School Auditorium. Come enjoy wonderful music, fabulous artists and authors, and help us continue to bring a quality arts program to our local communities.

Weekend pass: $15.00 adult, $5.00 student
