2024 Evening Storytelling Concert Tickets

At both the Friday and Saturday evening concerts, Octavia Sexton will tell stories from her repertoire which includes: 



Jack Tales have been with us for about 800 years.  These stories came to the Appalachian Mountains from the British Isles when the Europeans began to settle here.  They are about a character named Jack who has amusingly fantastic adventures.  The stories have changed through the years to reflect the environment and cultural traditions that emerged among the mountain people.  



Haint tales are scary stories.  Haint is a dialect word derived from haunted.  Many of the scary stories she tells are stories that passed to her through her ancestors. They reflect the influence of European, African and Native American telling.  Several are her own creations.  



Growing up in poverty within the Appalachian Mountains, combined with her unique life experiences, Octavia has created a compendium of stories ranging from the poignant to the hilarious.


Come both nights to hear a variety of Octavia's stories. Both evenings will include open mics, when anyone may tell a story. Both evenings will be appropriate for audiences of middle school ages - adults.
