  • | 2:00pm - 3:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Storytelling
    - There is no one-word description for what Don White does. He has brought audiences to laughter and tears in his live performances, studio recordings, and on the printed page for over twenty years. As a storyteller, comedian, author, troubadour, folksinger, and songwriter, White is a walking challenge to the phrase “file under.” “No artist on the coffeehouse circuit today is better than Don White at combining the heartfelt aesthetics of the singer-songwriter with side-splitting laughs. He mines the same regions for his jokes as he does for his serious songs: his streetwise, sometimes warring, sometimes loving family in Lynn.” – The Boston Globe

  • - October 1, 1932 in the fifth inning of game three of the 1932 World Series, with a count of two balls and two strikes, Babe Ruth pointed to the center field bleachers in Chicago's Wrigley Field and followed up by hitting a soaring home run high above the very spot to which he had just gestured. Did he really call his shot? Some Disagree, some eyewitnesses and Cubs pitcher Charlie Root believe he did not. Even Babe Ruth's Daughter said that he denied it, but Babe himself also claimed he did it.

    - Located in the natural beauty of Northeast Tennessee in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, Historic Jonesborough has played host to the three day National Storytelling Festival for over four decades. Called “the leading event of its kind in America” by USA Today, the award-winning festival begins on the first Friday in October each year.
    The National Storytelling Festival began in 1973 when 60 people gathered around an old farm wagon in Courthouse Square to hear a few Appalachian tales. During the decades since, that tiny audience has grown to 10,000 listeners, and the hay wagon has been replaced by large, circus-like tents spread throughout the town where world-renowned tellers spin their tales in this storybook setting.
    Produced by Jonesborough’s International Storytelling Center, the National Storytelling Festival represents three days of exciting storytelling performances that reflect a wealth of cultures, traditions, and styles - a world of stories in one small, historic town. For more information, visit click for details or call (423) 913-1276 or (800) 952-8392.
