Island Life, A Celebration Of Story & Song

Celebrate Fogo Island’s unique outport culture through music and storytelling. Connections that began when you arrived on Fogo are deepened after this evening. Listen to almost too-tall to be true tales gathered around the storytelling circle. Try to wipe the smile from your face, it will be impossible. Say yes! to the invitation to square dance. Tuck into a boil up supper. These are not long-lost traditions, they’re the very fabric of Fogo Islander’s way of life. Drink it all in.
