The concerts are a special feature of ISC’s Storytelling Live! series, a showcase of the country’s top storytellers.
The Uncalled for Trio will appear December 5-7, at 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm each day, with a brand new set of holiday stories and songs titled Holiday Blunderland. The Trio’s holiday shows have been an ISC tradition for over a decade.
