Beaver Creek Storytellers:
The Beaver Creek Storytellers of Bristol, Virginia-Tennessee is a non-profit association of storytelling enthusiasts who gather to support the Art of Story.
We formed in 1997 when ten storytellers gathered at one member’s office to hone our techniques and performance skills.
BCS is dedicated to assisting storytellers in developing their craft, promoting their performances, building a larger audience for story, and providing a community service.
Stop by the 606 State Street Gallery in Bristol, Tennessee, on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. and enjoy the storytelling with us. Our performing guests include storytellers, musicians, singers, and poets.
In our fourteenth year since our founding in 1997, BCS now has fifteen storytellers, two of whom are on a leave of absence. There are also three Apprentice Storytellers. We tell once a month most months of the year at 606 State Street Gallery in Bristol, Tennessee as well as perform at several special events annually. There are eleven additional supportive members to whom we are deeply grateful for their service and membership.
Big Mouths in a Little Pond
Unlike beavers who chomp things down,
We’re like big fish in a little pond,
But like our cousins we gather in groups,
And help each other jump through hoops
Of words. They’re our delight,
We always hope to get them right.
So come and hear us when we tell,
We guarantee your hearts will swell.
The beaver is our mascot. Here he is dressed for a night on the town:
