Speak: Shepherdstown Story Series

speak: shepherdstown story series The final two performances of the Speak: Shepherdstown Story Series are coming up, and if you have not had the opportunity to listen to any of the fantastic storytellers who have been part of the series so far, you will want to make sure you make the time to attend one of the upcoming shows in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. In a world where we are so dependent on texting and sending short messages to one another, the storytelling series is quite refreshing. Guests are invited to tune out the outside world and laugh and listen to beautifully crafted stories that are full of detail and local color.

The Speak: Shepherdstown Story Series was created by Adam Booth, a notable storyteller and professor at Shepherd University. The current season has been ongoing since September of last year, and a new artist has been introduced to the town each month. These storytellers are engaging, entertaining, and full of life.

The final two performances will feature storytellers Andy Fraenkel and Sheila Arnold Jones. Andy Fraenkel is a storyteller from West Virginia who tells stories that explore various spiritual traditions. He is known for his sacred stories, and he will be telling stories from the Mahabharata, Ramayana, and Bhagavat Purana on Tuesday, April 14th. Sheila Arnold Jones is a brilliant storyteller from the state of Virginia. She is known for her interactive stories and historical character interpretations. Jones will be the final artist in the series this season, and she will be in Shepherdstown on Tuesday, May 12th.

The Speak: Shepherdstown Story Series takes place at the War Memorial Building on German Street in the heart of Shepherdstown. The performances are held on the second floor of the building at 7:30 pm. The building does have an elevator in case stairs are an issue.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at door, and $8 for students with a student ID. Ten percent of ticket sales will go to a local charity or organization. The proceeds from Andy Fraenkel’s performance will go to the PIGS Animal Sanctuary in Shepherdstown, and the proceeds from Sheila Arnold Jones’ performance will go to the Jefferson County Parks & Recreation Youth Scholarship Fund. To purchase tickets ahead of time, you can visit Four Seasons Books in Shepherdstown.

Last month, the Speak: Shepherdstown Story Series featured West Virginia storyteller Bil Lepp. Lepp’s stories were powerful and relatable. The words he spoke held great power over the audience, and they were all so relatable. The storytelling tradition is something that should not be lost. It is wonderful that there are people in Shepherdstown that are excited about storytelling and keeping it alive as an art form. Will you become a part of that group? I promise, the shows will be well worth your time.

Shepherdstown is a wonderful place to live, and there are always a variety of events taking place like the Speak: Shepherdstown Story Series.

O’Hurley’s General Store | Thursday Night Music

O’Hurley’s General Store | Thursday Night Music

If you have never been to O’Hurley’s General Store in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, you are missing out!

o'hurley'sEvery Thursday night at 7:00 pm, O’Hurleys hosts a jam session where musicians are invited to come and play songs together. The jam session is far from a typical musical performance. It is interactive, engaging, and completely laid back. The musicians all sit in a circle, and there are chairs set up in rows throughout the room for guests to watch the magic unfold. If you get there early enough, there are also some rocking chairs available to sit in, but they are usually taken first! After all the tuning and warming up has taken place, the musicians select songs by taking turns going around the circle and suggesting a song for everyone to join in and play. It is amazing to see the collaboration between the musicians. It is evident that they are playing from the heart. They are not concerned with perfection; they take chances, and the result is beautiful.

While attending the O’Hurley’s Thursday night jam, guests are able to witness a variety of musical talent as the musicians play a plethora of instruments. Some of the instruments include guitars, mandolins, fiddles, dulcimers, flutes, and hand drums. While some musicians stick to one instrument, others go back and forth between several different instruments depending on which song has been selected to play. Occasionally, the musicians will sing along with the music, and guests are often encouraged to join in the songs.

The Eastern Panhandle has strong ties to Appalachian culture, and O’Hurley’s Thursday night music allows visitors to experience that connection and hear folk music that is characteristic of the area. I encourage you to take the time on a Thursday night to go listen to the talented musicians of the Eastern Panhandle at O’Hurley’s General Store. I guarantee you will be impressed and that you will want to come back again and again.

Shepherdstown, West Virginia is a town that is full of unique businesses like O’Hurley’s General Store. If you are interested in learning more about what it would be like to live in Shepherdstown, give The Linda Kilroy Team a call at (304) 725-1145.
