Sweet Tea Trail storytelling at the Timrod

  • Friday, March 14, 2014

The historic Timrod Library is proud to present “resident storyteller” Tim Lowry in a concert series titled “Post Cards from the Sweet Tea Trail.” This storytelling series will feature local history and southern culture from Summerville, SC, the Birthplace of Sweet Tea.

Lowry, a well-known folklorist and southern raconteur, will mix tales of historic Summerville with stories of personal experience, literary classics, and seasonal folklore. The concerts are for adult listeners with content being appropriate for a family audience.

On March 21, the first concert of the series will feature the story of Dr. Henry Woodward, Indian Agent of the Carolina Colony in 1670. This dramatic story of wilderness survival will be complemented with stories from Cherokee folklore, selections from Longfellow’s epic poem “The Song of Hiawatha,” and O. Henry’s classic short story “The Ransom of Red Chief.”

Each 90-minute performance begins at 3:00 pm on the third Friday of the month, March through August, in the Catherine Stewart Room of the Timrod Library at 217 Central Avenue, Summerville, SC 29483.

Tickets are $15 per person and include delicacies and drinks from Summerville’s famous “Sweet Tea Trail”. Seating is limited and advance purchase of tickets is strongly recommended. To purchase tickets visit www.storytellertimlowry.com .
