The 2021 Georgia Mountain Storytelling Festival is all online this year but will still be brimming with opportunities to laugh and learn, to draw joy and inspiration from well-told tales. We’ll be showcasing stories from five nationally-touring tellers—Elizabeth Ellis, Diane Ferlatte, Megan Hicks, Tim Lowry, and Antonio Rocha—and eight popular performers from our region—Judy Baker, David Petty, the Pressley Girls, Kanute Rarey, Cayce Terrell, Matthew Tooni, and Jess Willis.
They will share a wide range of stories, including:
- traditional folktales from around the world and right here in Appalachia
- stories that bring historical figures and time periods to life
- personal narratives
- ghost stories
- and more!
