The biggest celebration of traditional mountain arts in West Virginia happens this weekend at the State Capitol in Charleston: The Vandalia Gathering. Old-time music, musician competitions, dancing, crafts, and storytelling will all be on tap for a weekend of good fun. There will be good food too. I'm ready for the homemade ice cream myself.
On Saturday, I will be at the storytelling tent and performing with other members of the West Virginia Storytelling Guild on stage in the Cultural Center from 12:30-1:30pm. We will have storytelling and children's activities at our tent--something for everyone. Please stop by to say hello, listen to a story and enjoy this beautiful festival. Here are some photos from last year's festival: (For more from last year, click here)
A very good time! I hope you can join us.
