Jonesborough Yarn Exchange: Chilling Halloween Tales
October 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$5
Yarn Exchange Present Chilling Halloween Tales
Monday, October 23 at 7PM
On Monday, October 23 at 7PM, the Yarn Exchange Radio Show will present a performance to celebrate the Halloween Season, in a production filled with mysterious stories and eerie legends from the region.
True accounts of the macabre, straight from the pages of local history and lore include the woesome story of Cadet Cox, whose death still remains shrouded in mystery over one-hundred and fifty years later. He is buried at the Historic Rocky Hill Cemetery, and has one of the most visited and photographed tombstones.
Also featured is the gruesome story of Russell Bean’s return. Other interesting tales of Bean are recalled by his seven-times great grandson, who still lives on family property in Greeneville, Tennessee. Bean was the first baby of European descent born in Tennessee, and is buried at the Uriel Cemetery in Jonesborough.
Other stories featured in the show will be tales of local descendants who have met mysterious ends, as well as local legends and scary stories, which will be brought to life by a cast of regional actors.
Joining the cast this month is musical guest Nate Harris out of Boone, North Carolina, playing an eclectic mix of blues and folk music. The Mountain Times says, “Harris’s vocals and even his inflection seem to radiate the spirit of Bob Dylan.”
Tickets for the performance are $5 and are on sale now and can be purchased online at Jonesborough.com/tickets or by calling the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center at 423-753-1010.
Seating is limited, and reservations are recommended. A limited number of tickets may be available at the door. For more information, contact Yarn Exchange director Jules Corriere at email@example.com or call 423-794-6320.
