StoryTown Radio Show returns this month

The StoryTown Radio Show returns this month on Monday, August 23 at 7 p.m. at the McKinney Center with a live show featuring the area’s unique trades, customs and traditions. The one-hour production is filled with tales about goat farmers, blacksmiths, masons, banjo players, cloggers, quilters, balladeers and other unique trades that were historically practiced, and still are, in this part of the country.

Scenes for the radio show are created from stories of real people in East Tennessee, and then woven into a script performed by a cast of local performers who bring alive the voice of the region.

Joining the cast this month will be music guests Rheva and Keegan, playing a blend of old time traditional and Celtic music. Also joining the cast is Anne G’Fellers-Mason, director of the Heritage Alliance, who will share stories from the archives about the historical trades once practiced on Jonesborough’s Historic Main Street.

Tickets are $5 and are available at or by calling the Historic Visitors Center at 423.753.1010. This production is made possible in part by a grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission, and is sponsored by the Wild Women of Jonesborough and Gary and Sandee Degner.  For more information, see the StoryTown Facebook page.
