After a stop at the Welcome Center, we headed for the College Street tent, one of five tents that were set up in the downtown area of the city. There must have been close to fifteen thousand people in the city today. (See pictures of one tent emptying after a storyteller had finished an hour's storytelling) It is only a partial picture of the tent.
We heard John McCutcheon, Donald Davis, and Carmen Deedy. John is a folksinger storyteller who is master of a dozen different musical instruments, including the hammered dulcimer; Donald Davis is a teller from North Carolina and tells wonderful stories of his life and growing up years; and Carmen's family came from Cuba during the Cuban Revolution to the state of Georgia, when she was only a little girl. She tells amusing and arresting stories of her life after coming to Georgia. We enjoyed all of the stories we heard and can hardly wait to go again next year!
