LifestylesA celebration of song and story with Angela Lloyd

Personal tales, much like folk tales and fairy stories, are staples in the world of storytelling. Most tellers naturally tend to focus on stories about family—especially scenes from childhood. Veteran storyteller Angela Lloyd has a somewhat different approach: her favorite personal stories are about strangers.

It’s not that she never tells stories about her parents; it’s just that you meet some really interesting hitchhikers when you spend six years on the road, as Lloyd did in the early 1980’s.

Soon to be Jonesborough’s storyteller in residence, Lloyd will share highlights from her wide-ranging repertoire, which includes music, traditional stories, and even puppetry. Tuesday through Saturday, August 4 – 8, Lloyd will host daily matinees in the Mary B. Martin Storytelling Hall. Performances are scheduled for 2 p.m. sharp, and tickets are just $12 for adults and $11 for seniors, students, and children under 18. More...
