The talented marvels known as Three on a String will be at the 10th Annual Athens Storytelling Festival October 20th – 22nd in Athens, Alabama. This vaudevillian-like act has been on their anniversary tour performing to sold out audiences – making this appearance very special opportunity for fans and non-fans alike.
The men behind Three on a String’s eclectic and colorful performances are an amazing ensemble of experience and talent. Jerry Ryan, formerly a teacher, coach and principal left behind his academic career for his dream of performing as guitarist, vocalist, harmonica player and funny man extraordinaire. Bobby Horton started with boyhood trumpet lessons and now has over 20 instruments to his repertoire which has led him to balancing his demand as a professional Civil War musician sought after by Ken Burns and maintaining his position as a Three on a String staple. Brad Ryan might be known locally for the Rick and Bubba theme and even more so abroad for touring Scotland with Michael Adler Ministries but old and new fans have come to love his wit and humor in his comedy bits.
Three on a String will be joined by storytellers Donald Davis, Andy Offut Irwin, Dolores Hydock and Michael Reno Harrell during the 10th Annual Athens Storytelling Festival from October 18th to October 22nd in downtown Athens, Alabama.
The storytelling kicks off Tuesday, October 18th under the big tent with the 5th Annual Dan Williams’ Local Teller night. The amateurs take the stage starting at 7:00 p.m. and the cost is $5.00 per person.
