Tickets are on sale for the 6th Annual sell-out production of Desert Stories; a Spoken Word Event that features New Eclectic Artists and the Desert’s Best Storytellers

JOSHUA TREE, CA – Returning for its sixth year following last year’s sold-out performance, the Hi-Desert Cultural Center’s popular Desert Stories spoken word event is set for Saturday February 2, 2013 at 7 p.m. – and tickets are selling quickly.

“Spoken Word” is a popular form of literary art or artistic performance in which lyrics, poetry, or stories are spoken and may include singing and multi-media visual effects.  Artist and event host, Cheryl Montelle, invites you to come hear more “true-life” experiences and a few “tall tales” from some of the Desert’s best storytellers and some special guests.  This year’s event will feature Marie Chambers, Tania Hammidi, William Hillyard, Bernard Leibov, Suzzann Macleod, Alan Rasmussen, Robbi Rob, Candacy Taylor, Tracy Tynan, and Steve Stajich.

Desert Stories is a spectacular signature event that garners the rave reviews of both critics and audiences each year. Its popularity is a testament to the skill and artistry of the many individuals who continue to make Desert Stories the incredible experience that audiences can’t get enough of.Jarrod Radnich, HDCC President
