The Oral Traditions tent at the WV State Folk Festival in Glenville features some names that should be familiar to WV Writers members and possibly to Roundtable members too. The Festival is scheduled for June 18-21; the Oral Traditions tent is scheduled on Friday (19th) and Saturday (June 20th).
Most festival events are free and include lots of old-time music with our state's best musicians, The WV Belles, and lots more. It's a fun, laid-back time in a small town that keeps the heart of the mountains alive.
Here is the Oral Traditions tent schedule:
Friday, June 19th:
11am:Kirk Judd (poet)
12:00 Laura Treacy Bentley (poet)
2:00 pm Marc Harshman (poet, storyteller, writer)
3:00 pm Mountain Echoes (storytellers)
Saturday, June 20th:
10 am Fran Schmetzer (local Gilmer County author)
12:00 Susanna Holstein (storyteller, poet, writer)
3:00 pm Cat Pleska (storyteller and writer)
