2022 Season Passes
Each month’s script is adapted from stories collected in the hills, hollers, and mountains of East Tennessee. These monthly, hour-long performances celebrate and explore the culture, heritage, and history of the surprisingly diverse voices found in this region. Home to the town of the first Abolitionist Newspaper in the Country. Home to the state that made Women’s Suffrage a reality. Home to Warner Institute, training Freedmen and Women as teachers less than a decade after the Civil War. Surprising, heartwarming and often hilarious stories of the independent East Tennessee people come to life with a voice and accent that can be found nowhere else.
Since 2011, The Jonesborough StoryTown performance has traditionally taken place at the International Storytelling Center in Downtown Jonesborough, but due to COVID-19 StoryTown currently performs at the McKinney Center on the fourth Monday of each month.
The performance is aired monthly on local NPR station 89.5 FM, WETS on the last Wednesday of each month at 8PM, and streams live at this time on their HD Channel 1 station at: https://www.etsu.edu/wets/programming/listen.php
StoryTown Podcast features a mix of current and vintage productions, and is available for free on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts. It is also available at www.storytown.simplecast.com
The Jonesborough StoryTown Radio Show is open to anyone who would like to participate. Everyone is welcome, from all ages and backgrounds, regardless of experience. If you have a story to tell, this is the place.
