FARMINGTON — Farmington will host two performances on Saturday, June 13, by the Massachusetts duo Eshu Bumpus and Motoko on Saturday.

Eshu’s African-American traditions and jazz musicianship will blend with Motoko’s Japanese traditions and mime artistry in a morning show for families at the Farmington Public Library and an evening performance for adults at the Emery Community Arts Center at the University of Maine at Farmington.

Details of the June 13 performances will be publicized later and will be available on the website westernmainestorytelling.org.

The Farmington Library is increasing its involvement in oral storytelling. This year it has started hosting the monthly meetings of the local storytelling guild, the Western Order of Dedicated Storytellers.
