Storytelling Live!

The 18th season of ISC’s signature concert series is underway!  Storytelling Live! is a six-month showcase of the nation’s top talent. Each week, we invite a different “teller in residence” to Jonesborough for five days of live storytelling performances.  Designed to complement the National Storytelling Festival, Storytelling Live! features talented tellers who specialize in a variety of oral traditions, including songs and poetry, which rely on the spoken word. On top of daily performances in our downtown facility, many of our tellers stack their schedules with local appearances at schools and hospitals.  Matinee shows are at 2 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, with other special events scheduled throughout the season.  Walk-in seating is offered whenever tickets remain available, but reservations are strongly recommended.
