Story-tellers and Music

During the Mountain Spirits Festival, several story-tellers will spin their yarns upstairs in the Franklin County Public Library. Among the story-tellers are these folks:  Linda Goodman (at 10:30), Linda Hartman at 11:30, Charles Lytton at 12:30, and David Bass (1:30).

Musical groups performing outside at the festival include Southern Breeze (10:00), Upriver (11:00 & 3:00), Ladies of the Lake (noon & 2:00), and Aspen Black & Foxie (1:00).

 Upriver plays Appalachian mountain music, Ladies of the Lake is a traditional folk music group, and Aspen Black plays country and western.


Southern Breeze is Samantha and Alex Young. They played at the Franklin County Library's book launch for Stuck and they were terrific!

Besides authors, and story-tellers, and musicians, Mountain Spirits also offers some activities just for kids. Between 10 and 2, Franklin County Parks and Recreation will provide kids a chance to find candy in the straw, play cornhole, and design their own photo frames. Look for the big white tent behind Edible Vibe (and in front of the authors' big white tent). 

You're sure to find something entertaining at Mountain Spirits. There's something for everyone!
