Gabfest-Storytelling Festival

One more day to go. From the Illinois Times:
Everyone likes a good story — but what about an entire day of good stories?
That’s precisely what you’ll get this weekend if you venture to Lincoln’s New
Salem for the 20th annual Prairie Tales Storytelling Festival. The festival
features two stages of talent from across the country, making for a literary
hoedown of sorts, complete with hay-bale seating. That talent includes Urbana’s
own Dan Keding, who has seven Storytelling World Awards under his belt, and
Kevin Strauss of Minnesota, known for his captivating stories involving nature
and animals. Sandi Sylver of North Aurora integrates storytelling,
ventriloquism, and music in her performances. Elizabeth Ellis of Texas tells
regional tales of strong heroic women, was awarded the Circle of Excellence
Award by the National Storytelling Association. Two Jacksonville natives,
Heather Harlan Bacus and Mike Anderson, round out the lineup.
