    - A musician and storyteller since the early 1980s, Willy Claflin tells original and traditional stories, and is the speaking-mouth-person for Maynard Moose, the only quadruped on the storytelling circuit. He also sings traditional ballads from the British Isles and Appalachia, blues, and his own original tunes.

    Claflin has authored multiple award-winning recordings and has performed across the globe, including at the International Storytelling Festival in Ireland. He is an NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence award recipient.

    “Claflin’s performances reflect an astute ear for the incongruous and a blithe love of the absurd. This is an irreverent folkie who kicks the stuffing out of museum pieces.” – The Boston Phoenix

  • - Children interested in paleontology, science, art and nature are invited to participate in the annual Paleo-Camp at the East Tennessee State University and General Shale Brick Natural History Museum and Visitors Center at the Gray Fossil Site.

    Scheduled for June, Paleo- Camp allows children to explore paleontology in the field and lab at the five-acre Gray Fossil Site as well as the museum and education center.

    Campers will dig at the fossil site to find fossils, rocks and minerals, wet-screen for micro-fossils and identify them in the lab, and make casts of bones. Each camp section will also have plenty of age-appropriate activities.

    “Paleo-Camp is a unique summer camp offering and a great way to expose children of all ages to science and hands-on application,” said Maegan Beale, education coordinator. “The interactive nature of the fossil site allows for campers to be fully immersed in the science they learn.”

    Several sessions for children from pre-K all the way through 8th grade are available.

    - At 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, June 1, at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, Adam “Butter Bean” Alfrey will bring to life the national pastime as it was played in 1864. Back then, base ball (most often written as two words) was played without gloves and ascribed to be a gentleman’s game. Butter Bean plays for the Knoxville Holstons Vintage Base Ball Club and is a club member of the Tennessee Association of Vintage Base Ball which entertains and educates through the re-creation of 19th-century base ball and, more specifically, through the interpretation of the Holstons, a team that first played in Knoxville in 1867. Come learn about Tennessee’s earliest base ball clubs, as well as the rules, equipment, uniforms, and customs you can expect to witness when watching a vintage match!* Hurrah!

    This event — part of the programming for our ongoing special exhibit “Made in Tennessee: Manufacturing Milestones” — is free and open to the public.

    For more information about this talk, call 423-573-1927. For more information about the Tennessee Association of Vintage Base Ball, go to http://www.tennesseevintagebaseball.com.

    * After you’ve learned all about vintage base ball from Butter Bean at the museum on June 1, be sure to check out a match between the Knoxville Holstons and the Emmett Machinists of Knoxville at Rocky Mount State Historic Site on Saturday, June 4, at 12pm. For more information about the match at Rocky Mount, go to http://www.rockymountmuseum.com.
