Soup & Songs: Christmas with the Yarn Exchange 2019
November 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Tickets $25 Available: HERE
Kick off the Holiday Season on November 26th, 2018 at 6pm with the Jonesborough Yarn Exchange and the Jonesborough Novelty Band in their annual Christmas Caroling Sing-Along. This year’s show is perfectly seasoned, as audience and cast sing together a collection of favorite Christmas Carols that are sprinkled lightly with holiday stories. All who attend will receive a song book so they may sing along to every holiday tune, including classic standards as well as newer songs borne from the Appalachian region to include “I Wonder as I Wander.” The Yarn Exchange cast will shed light on how some of these carols came to be, while Terry Countermine and the Novelty Band take audiences on a sentimental musical journey.
Tickets are only $25, and will support two local entities: The Jonesborough Yarn Exchange Radio Show and the McKinney Center’s outreach program. The Jonesborough Yarn Exchange is dedicated to collecting and sharing Jonesborough’s rich cultural heritage and stories through a monthly radio show presented at the International Storytelling Center and broadcast on local NPR station WETS 89.5 and online at wets.org on HD Channel 1. The McKinney Center is dedicated to providing excellent instruction in the arts to adults and children by the region’s finest artist-teachers. Two great causes are benefitted in one fun event.
Guests may purchase tickets online at jonesborough.com/tickets or by calling the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center at (423) 753-1010, or by visiting in person. Seating is limited to one hundred and fifty seats for this event, so advance tickets are recommended.
