The Festival offers a variety of storytelling styles and story genre. You'll hear Appalachian story delivered by Donald Davis, and small-town tales brought by humorist, Philip Gulley. Experience the exuberance of Bill Harley, whose hilarious stories paint a vibrant picture of growing up! Listen to powerful stories and folktales in the African oral tradition presented in song and story by TAHIRA. See if you can figure-out when Kim Weitkamp's stories have crossed from possibly a "real story" into a very imaginative "tall tale." Delight in the fractured fairy tales told by Marie Winger, and in the "Lost Dollar" Americana stories of Charles Kiernan.
Friday 7 -10 pm
