“I Will Not be Moved: Stories of Perseverance” March Radio Show

March 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Stories of inspirational and influential women of the Appalachians will grace the McKinney Center stage on March 25th in a StoryTown Radio Show episode called “I Will Not be Moved: Stories of Perseverance.”
Featured in this live production will be a harrowing story of a woman who donned men’s clothing to rescue her husband during the Civil War, true tales from a pack horse librarian, the musings of the Washington County Courthouse as it watches the people of Jonesborough come and go, a letter from Frederick Douglass that brought a teacher back to town, and stories from Jonesborough’s oldest resident. All this and more!
The music guest for this March 25th production is Radio Show favorite, Momma Molasses, whose music interlaces Classic Country, Folk, Piedmont Blues, Soul, Swing, Bluegrass, and Old-Time which blend into a uniquely timeless sound. Harnessing her rolling contralto voice which scales over homespun finger-picked guitar, her sound is warm, rich, and passionate, with songs that embrace, and captivate listeners, soothing well-worn hearts with vulnerable lyricism.
The production takes place at 7PM on March 25th at the McKinney Center. Tickets are $10 and available online at Jonesborough.com/tickets or by calling the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center at 423-753-1010. The February show sold out quickly, so make sure you get your tickets today.
The Radio Show is also recorded for broadcast on local NPR station WETS 89.5 out of Johnson City, which can be heard the last Wednesday of the month at 8PM. StoryTown is sponsored by Allandale Mansion with the City of Kingsport, the Tennessee Arts Commission, Gary and Sandee Degner, Trivia with Budds, the Silver Raven, and Mountain Empire Cremation and Burial Services.
