About the CD:
Seven spooky stories, clear and crisp as the night they were recorded, are sure to reach out and grab listeners.
Dare to listen alone, but you might want to listen with a friend who'll offer comfort. The following questions (one from each story) will surely intrigue you . . . Jack's House is Haunted, is yours? Will you ever want to eat oatmeal again? Will you ever again go down to the river at night? Who is looking in your window with scratchy finger nails and ruby red lips? Do you say your prayers before you go to bed a-way-upstairs? Do you know that it takes a lot of food to feed a 12 foot monster? Who has the golden arm?
Graveyard Tales offers seven different stories that will captivate audiences of all ages. The stories progressively get spookier.
JSG delights audiences with their Graveyard Tales every July at Rocky Mount. In 2006, they recorded live the evening’s performance.
About the Guild:
In the summer of 1994 David Joe Miller of Jonesborough, Tennessee placed a small notice in the newspaper inviting local storytellers to form a professional guild. Six tellers responded. Since that day, JSG has continually given residents and visitors to Tennessee’s oldest town the opportunity each Tuesday to share humanity’s most ancient form of communication – story.
The Jonesborough Storytellers Guild also hosts the Swapping Grounds at the National Storytelling Festival the first full weekend in October. It is in this small tent, that anyone can come tell their story to an appreciative and attentive audience.
The Guild also has many other venues for which they tell stories at each year.
After listening to the CD, JSG invites story listeners to come to Jonesborough, Tennessee. They’ll be telling stories on Tuesday evenings at 7 pm at the Cranberry Thistle.
