Real? Imagined? Who knows? Creepy tales unfold from stories passed down, legends and myths, and things that go bump in the night with the Jonesborough Storytellers Guild when they share their stuff September 9 at Rocky Mount State Historic Site.
The guild is the oldest continuing group of storytellers in the nation. Their graveyard tales will include scary spooky stories of ghosts, ghoulies, and long-legged beasties. Due to this event’s popularity for all ages, a special children’s concert will be held at 2 p.m. for ages five and up, followed by the adult show at 7 p.m.
Featured children’s show storytellers include Evelyn Edwards, Judy “Butterfly” Farlow, and Kelle Jolly.
Featured adult show storytellers include Judy “Butterfly” Farlow, Catherine Yael Scorta, Linda Poland, Wallace Shealy, and Kelle Jolly.
Tickets are $5 for children and $10 for adults at the 2 p.m. show. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, and $10 for students 12 and up for the 7 p.m. show.
