Story and Song

“I think that was one of my favorite shows we have hosted so far. So lovely, melodious and thought-provoking. Thank you.” Cris Coffing, owner of Black Dog Arts Cafe, Snoqualmie, WA

The Go Janes have been sharing the stage with storyteller and Seattle “Living Legacy” Auntmama (aka MaryAnne Moorman) almost from the beginning. Auntmama’s tales of growing up in Virginia in the 60’s and 70’s with the themes of ancestry/legacy, social justice, her delightfully idiosyncratic family, and her trademark specific and vivid writing relayed with a master’s sense of timing, suspense, and the “smack-a-dab” quick-punch.

These videos were taken at Traditions Fair Trade Cafe in Olympia, Washington, in 2019.
