If Rivers Could Speak at Schoharie Crossing

If Rivers Could Speak

On October 24, 2017 Alden (Joe) Doolittle will present an evening of storytelling at Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site.  His program entitled “If Rivers Could Speak, The Stories They’d Tell,” offers stories of the Mohawk Valley, its people and places. From the Iroquois and early European settlers to the Revolution and the Erie Canal, Joe will tell tales of how the valley affected the history and development of our nation. The event is free. The program, hosted by the Friends of Schoharie Crossing, starts at 6:30. Refreshments are served after the performance. All are welcome.

Joe Doolittle has applied his humorous good-natured style with audiences throughout the state. He has developed many historically based tales about the Hudson and Mohawk Valleys. He is a coproducer of Story Circle at Proctors, a resident company offering a variety of programs at the theater. In 2103, he was honored by the National Storytelling Network with the Oracle Award for Leadership and Service in the Northeast Region.  In 2015, the League for the Advancement of New England Storytelling gave him the Brother Blue and Ruth Hill Award for exceptional leadership in Storytelling.
