Jay Leeming brings performance storytelling to the Cherry as part of the monthly “Dreaming the Stone” series!
Leeming renders tales for diverse audiences, often weaving them together with live music. The words of the stories are improvised anew with each telling in response to the inspiration of the moment and the nature of the audience.
