Nationally known storyteller Tim Lowry will perform at Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site on Sunday, August 28 at 6:00 PM as part of the annual Not Just for Kids Storytelling series. His performance will take place outdoors in front of the Schoharie Crossing Visitor Center, 129 Schoharie Street, Fort Hunter, NY. The show will move indoors in case of rain. Guests are invited to chat and enjoy refreshments after the show. The event is free and open to the public.
With a Southern manner and droll side-wit, Tim Lowry is equally at home in an Appalachian log cabin, Mandan wigwam, New York Theater, or Texas ranch house. Lowry grew up in southeastern Kentucky where he learned the art of storytelling from Appalachian folk who spun yarns and told tales to entertain, teach morals, and pass along local history. Currently residing in Summerville, South Carolina, Lowry has been entertaining audiences with mixture of folk tales and personal narrative for 16 years.
The last performance of The Not Just for Kids Storytelling series takes place on September 11 when Margaret French will present a program entitled, “All Too Human, Stories of Laughter, Wit and Folly”.
Saratoga Arts made this program possible with a Community Arts Grant funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. The program is also supported by Stewart’s Shops, L’Ultimo Restaurant, the Garden Bug, and Karen’s Produce.
