On July 22 at 7 p.m., the Jonesborough Yarn Exchange live radio show will present “Our Amazing Animals,” in a production filled with stories about incredible animal encounters from all over the region. Also included are stories about the work of the Humane Society, as well as local “foster Pet Parents,” and their experiences with caring for animals until they are ready to be adopted.
Joining the cast as musical guests this month will be the Sweetwater Troubadours. An eclectic assortment of tunes from the crazy quilt background of a honky-tonk/bluegrass musician, wedded to a classical/folk musician with a West Indian twist. They present country to calypso, old English ballade to medieval incantation – with originals thrown into the mix. Guitars and banjo, flutes, harmonica and vocal harmonies, percussion and more – these Troubadours invite you to time travel from sorrow to silly and back.
Tickets for the production are $5 and available online at Jonesborough.com/tickets or by calling the Visitors Center at 423-753-1010. Seating is limited, and advance tickets are recommended. This program is part of Jonesborough’s StoryTown Initiative and sponsored by the Tennessee Arts Commission.
