Parlor In The Round

Tap Root Public House, 3300 Spenard Rd, Anchorage, Alaska

 

Performers not yet announced...stay Tuned!

What's Parlor In The Round? The Mountain State has its Stage and the Prairie Home, its Companion. This concert season Alaskans will gather at Parlor In The Round. Borrowing from the guitar pull tradition of porches and campfires, songwriters from all walks of Alaskan life (and some beyond) will trade songs and stories as they are inspired by each other and the audience. After the intermission tradition is cast aside as the musicians dive into collaborations, jocular inventions and premeditated musing. Kevin Worrell hosts this dinner theater, drawing out the strength and vulnerability of each artist and holding the crowd closely throughout the performance. The TapRoot Public House transforms its dancefloor into a candle lit dining room and a hush falls over the crowd. Expect to lean in and laugh out loud at Parlor in the Round.
