A Night with the Yarn Exchange, Jonesborough’s original storytelling radio hour, has experienced sell-out crowds this year during their live performances at the International Storytelling Center and now, season passes are available for next year’s season. 

The program, which also airs on WETS 89.5 FM and streams online on HD Channel 1, features areas actors performing a show scripted from stories collected within this region. Each show has a different them, with the various tales coming straight from community members in Jonesborough and throughout Northeast Tennessee, which celebrates the area’s unique culture.

In addition to the stories, the show features a new musical guest each month, including blues, folk, jazz, and country music artists.

Season passes for the 2019 season are available for $55. These passes guarantee a seat during the season for ten monthly performances, admission to the opening season gala on January 22, plus $5 towards the annual “Story of the Carols” Soupbowl Fundraiser Performance at the McKinney Center in late November which kicks off the holiday season.

Passes may be purchased online at Jonesborough.com/tickets or by calling the Visitors Center at 423-753-1010. Seating is limited. Season Passes are the best way to guarantee that you will be able to hear Jonesborough’s stories all year long.
