Songs and Stories Inspired by the Smoky Mountains
We tell stories. It’s what we do. In every culture across the world, tales get passed from one generation to the next, reinforcing our values or just keeping us entertained. Long before any of those stories got written down, they took on the form of songs. Now story and song traditions are together again during the Lyrics and Lore Weekend taking place from Thursday, January 26 to Sunday, January 29 and being held at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort in Pigeon Forge.
This public event put on through a joint effort of the Smoky Mountain Songwriter’s Festival and the International Storytelling Center will combine the two arts of storytelling and songwriting into a single weekend of emotion evoking and thought provoking.
