Storytellers at Franklin Folk Festival

Written by 

Two renowned storytellers will be performing during the Franklin Folk Festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, July 19, at the Franklin Town Hall Meeting Room.

Teller Wendel Craker will spin yarns and share folklore drawn from a range of periods, subjects, and styles, including our Southern Appalachian Mountains.

Yona Welch, who was born into the Bird Clan of the Eastern Cherokee and raised on the Qualla Indian Boundary, inherited a rich tradition of songs and stories from his ancestors who have lived in the mountains for thousands of years.

This program is sponsored by the Arts Council of Macon County, with funding from the North Carolina Arts Council.

Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
