Now in its seventh season, “Yarn Exchange Radio Show” is a monthly, scripted production, based on local stories and regional music, and performed by an inter-generational, multi-cultural cast of local actors, storytellers, and musicians, to create an audio patchwork quilt of what it means to be home in the mountains.
The Jonesborough Yarn Exchange performance takes place at the International Storytelling Center in Downtown Jonesborough and is broadcasted monthly to the Tri-Cities region on the local NPR station 89.5 FM, WETS. These productions celebrate the culture, history, and stories of the people of Jonesborough and the Southern Appalachian Region.
The Jonesborough Yarn Exchange is a community building group and open to anyone who would like to participate. Everyone is welcome, from all ages and backgrounds, regardless of experience. If you live here, you belong! If you have a story to tell, this is the place! For more information contact Jules Corriere at email@example.com or 423.794.6320.
