'Sips, Songs and Stories' brings artists together who are “Living a Dream”

“Sips, Songs and Stories” brings musicians, writers and winemakers together in the city’s newest creative venue atop The Owyhee Building.

The Sullivans went with the theme of “Living a Dream” because “that’s what we’re all doing,” Carrie Sullivan says.

At the event you’ll taste the latest vintages from Telaya Wine, including the 2011 Turas, a red blend made with Columbia Valley grapes that recently received an excellent rating from Great Northwest Wine.

Andrew Coba and Phil Roy will cover the song portion.

Coba is a young jazz musician who’s been making a name for himself in the Treasure Valley since he was 14. This is a great chance to hear him before he heads off to the music program at USC this fall.

Roy is a seasoned singer/songwriter who moved to Boise a few years ago after a career that found him working with the likes of Tom Waits, Mavis Staples and Aaron Neville.

The stories will be from Boise writer Jeannine Antoniou Smith, who will read from her book “Throwing Bones,” a memoir of her travels through the remote areas of South Africa. Then “Volt” writer Alan Heathcock will interview her about her work.

Tickets are limited. It’s $45 at There are 30 remaining.
