Adirondack storyteller Bill Smith performs Tuesday
OLD FORGE — Bill Smith, Adirondack Storyteller and Balladeer, returns to the Old Forge Library, 220 Crosby Blvd, on Tuesday, July 10, at 7:30 p.m. with Adirondack Stories.
A Library favorite, the popular Storyteller delights audiences everywhere he performs with his repertoire of humorous tales that he learned from his father who was a logger, hunter and trapper and songs and poems that were taught to him by his mother. “Bill Smith’s Tales From the Featherbed,” is a collection of many of these stories. He has also produced recordings of his stories and songs. Many know him as a skilled basket maker, a craft he learned as a boy from the St. Regis Mohawk Indians who used to camp in the woods near the family farm in Colton, in St. Lawrence County.
His books, CD’s, walking sticks, baskets and other handmade articles will be available for sale following his performance.
The program is free and open to the public.
