An ode to tea houses of the past, present and future, we are excited to present Familiar Voices: an evening dedicated (but not limited) to sharing poetry, prose and song. 


Historically, one of the functions of a tea house was to serve as a place where oral narratives were exchanged. Folk tales, legends, songs and myths – there was space for all forms of story. Shiloh will continue this tradition by inviting our community to share anything that needs to be released and received.


The universal voice is familiar. 


Familiar Voices is an opportunity for guests to share their stories with the community in an open format, open mic setting. We welcome all forms of stories onstage: poetry, prose, music and theater.

Guests who wish to perform should arrive before 7:30pm in order to sign up. The evening will end at 10pm; we encourage you to stay until the end of the event out respect for all performers. Please be aware that due to time constraints, signing up does not guarantee that you will perform.
