From the Storytellers of Central Ohio

Thursday evening, come out to our first Speak Easy of the season and the first in our NEW location! We'll start at 7 pm at the Wild Goose Creative, half a block south of Hudson on Summit.

Friday evening, we're joining up at the Shamrock Club at 7:30 (downstairs in the pub and yes, the bar will be serving!) You don't have to be Irish and neither do your stories (we won't even insist you try Guinness). Last time, we heard family tales aplenty from folks who don't think of themselves as storytellers, even if they are...

And last but most certainly NOT least--Saturday morning, our regular monthly meeting at Aeropagitica Bookstore 3510 N. High St., 10:30-12:30. Our speaker will be Emil McVeigh, leading a discussion on SOCO: OUR PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE.

Don't forget, the Gipson & Fitz Trio with Rachel Frank performs January 30 for the Folkside Coffeehouse. The Gipson & Fitz Trio entertains audiences with an original blend of Bluegrass, Americana, Folk, and Southern Rock. Brant Gipson lends his voice, acoustic guitar, and banjo to an inspiring body of sound consisting of striking lyrics, strong vocals, and bold melodies. Mark Fitzharris adds his unique vocal ability and his exceptional guitar and mandolin playing to create the fully developed sound of Gipson & Fitz. Bassist, Billy Cory has now joined Gipson & Fitz on stage. Whether plucking, slapping or bowing, Billy’s upright bass playing punches through to the heart of the most skeptical music fans. The trio has grown with the ongoing evolution of their genre while maintaining the purity of its roots. The strong songwriting and vocal skills within the group, along with a vigorous passion for the art of music drive the Gipson & Fitz Trio to continually strive for new sounds to please audiences of all ages. They are no strangers to the stage, having appeared in various projects, the most notable of which were “Uncle Sam’s Dream Machine” (, the “Uptown Elephant Company” and the “Teeny Tucker Band” ( As previous members of these groups, they played many different venues in amny states and have shared the stage with legendary artists such as Phil Lesh & Friends, Bob Dylan, Rusted Root, B.B. King, Koko Taylor, Bo Diddley Jr., and Buddy Guy.

If you enjoy discovering lively new original tunes and rediscovering classics in a new light then be sure to check out the Gipson & Fitz Trio January 30th at the Folkside Coffeehouse. We will be treated to the fantastic fiddling of Rachel Frank as this trio becomes a quartet for this extra special performance! Doors open at 7PM with the featured performance at 9PM at Areopagitica Bookstore, 3510 N. High Street, Columbus. Suggested Donation is $5, $4 for CFMS members, plus a can of food for the Mid-Ohio Fook Bank.
