More About Donald Davis: Teller-In-Residence

Donald Davis was born in a Southern Appalachian mountain world rich in stories, surrounded by a family of traditional storytellers who told him gentle fairy tales, simple and silly Jack tales, scary mountain lore, ancient Welsh and Scottish folktales, and most importantly, nourishing, true-to-life stories of his own neighbors and kin.

Featured at festivals throughout the U.S. and world, Davis is also known as a prolific author, producer of books and CDs, and a guest host for NPR’s Good Evening. Davis is a recipient of the NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence and Lifetime Achievement awards.

“I could have listened all morning to Donald Davis . . . his stories often left listeners limp with laughter at the same time they struggled with a lump in the throat.” – New York Times

More About this Event Poster: International Storytelling Center

The International Storytelling Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of people around the world through the arts of storytelling. It is our organization’s goal to inspire and empower people to capture and tell their stories, listen to the stories of others, and use storytelling to produce positive change.

The Center’s campus includes the 14,000 square foot Mary B. Martin Storytelling Hall, surrounded by a three-acre park. The Hall includes a state of the art performance theater, Gift Shop with offerings including storytelling books and CDs, journals, souvenirs, and other storytelling related gift items. Rooms are also available for rent for weddings, receptions, business meetings and seminars.

ISC’s flagship event, the National Storytelling Festival occurs annually during the first weekend of every October, it is the oldest and most prestigious event of its kind in the world, and ignited the modern day storytelling revival in America. In venues ranging from an intimate theater setting to tents that seat 1600, festival attendees are treated to compelling performances from over 30 world-class storytellers.

Programming at the center also includes the renowned teller-in-residence (TIR) series, which boasts a 26 week lineup of nationally-known storytellers in Jonesborough, Tennessee—the storytelling capital of the world. From May to October, a different artist appears each week in live matinee and evening performances at the Center Theater.
