Harrell to share holiday stories and songs Nov. 27

Songwriter and storyteller Michael Reno Harrell will make what is becoming an annual holiday appearance at Ridge Runner Naturals on Main Street in Waynesville at 8 p.m. on Nov. 27.

“This one is always very special,” Harrell says on his web site. “Come early and check out all of the new wonderful watercolor and oil artwork by Jo Kelley and the spectacular photography by Ed Kelley, the gallery owners.”

The Kelleys clear out the floor of the gallery and put in 50 chairs, creating an intimate environment. There are homemade desserts and beverages during the break between the two sets.

Harrell is expected to perform many new holiday songs and stories. The desserts are by specialty baker Debi Hall with “Just Simply Delicious.” There is also tea, juice or coffee.

Tickets, which include dessert, are $12 and can be purchased at Ridge Runner Naturals from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., by phone at 828.456.3003, or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
