The four friends gave their first performance of “Talk is Cheap” in August and had a request for a second show before they even took the stage together. The calls keep coming so the Tour continues.
It is hardly surprising that they are in such a great demand; the four are some of the best known and best loved performers in east Tennessee.
Local son, Jim Claborn, is known as a popular history teacher, Davy Crockett re-enactor, storyteller and good ol’ boy. After hosting the beloved Heartland Series on WBIR-TV for 25 years, Bill Landry has met more unique characters and has enjoyed more first-hand traditional activities than most and has a bounty of tales to tell of those experiences. Sam Venable shares his wit and wisdom weekly in his popular column in the Knoxville News Sentinel. Elizabeth Rose is a middle school principal in Kingston who uses her beautiful voice to sing ballads and tell tales.
The show promises to be an afternoon full of fun and laughter. Each storyteller will take the stage individually and join together at the end for a question and answer session.
General admission is $20; enjoy preferred seating and time with the storytellers at a post-show reception with refreshments for $30. Tickets are on sale now at Rose Center and Ramsey’s Farm Market. Consider tickets as a unique gift for someone special.
