OK, the Riverway Festival isn't a music festival, but music has a part in it:

Charlotte Baker Alston tells in the griot tradition, and will give a workshop on the use of rhythm instruments in telling stories.

I'll be travelling 200 miles for this because my son has become a Willy Claflin groupie since seeing him last fall. Willy seems goofy, using a puppet to tell childrens' stories. But the moral of one of his stories is "learn to be a folksinger and you will always have a job and a place to sleep." He also channels Gamble Rogers with a wonderful routine.

Add Donald Davis, who tells of North Carolina folks, Liz Weir (IF she can get here from Ireland), and many local tellers, and this looks like a great time for all! Most of the events are free, though you have to call ahead for seating.

We're planning to attend the ghost stories on Friday and funny stories Saturday. We're undecided if we'll stay for Sunday.
