JONESBOROUGH (press release)—Due to large crowds, Jonesborough Yarn Exchange, Jonesborough’s original storytelling radio show, will now be performed 6:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Monday evenings in the International Storytelling Center.
The show recently won a Pinnacle Award from the Northeast Tennessee Tourism Association which recognizes tourism’s peak performers (individuals, groups, businesses and organizations) that significantly contribute to the region’s economy through tourism promotion and development.
This month, the Yarn Exchange teamed up with the Washington County Humane Society and the stories in the show revolve around “Pet Tales,” featuring the antics of pets, the important role of service animals and rescue stories.
In July, the hunt is on, as the Yarn Exchange performs an audience request episode, featuring stories of survival.
August features “Traveling Tales,” with stories of how families settled in and around the region with horses and covered wagons. This show features a story from a man born in 1929, who recalls a tale about his own father, who was born in 1854.
