Chris Chandler visits Florence!Chris Chandler, American Storyteller, visited Florence July 11

Chris Chandler loves coming to Florence. This year our Volunteer powered KXCR station is especially grateful to the Class Act Theatre for providing their sweet performance stage.

Accompanied by guitar talent John Elliot, Chandler painted provocative prose pictures of slices of American life caught under the microscope of his creative gaze. Beneath the entertaining surface of his hilarious monologues we witnessed a deep respect for language, literature and democracy. “He’s the best performance poet I’ve ever seen.” -Utah Phillips

Peter Yarrow (of Peter Paul and Mary) says, “the spirit of Woody Guthrie lives in the heart of Chris Chandler”.

Chris has come to Florence for several years and loves our Florence audiences.  We look forward to seeing him again.
