Blakeley Hosts Music and Storytelling

Posted

Popular local band Gypsy Spark will join acclaimed storytellers Harriet Outlaw and Frank Tiger at Historic Blakeley State Park tonight for a family-friendly performance.

The night is part of the park’s continuing Music and Storytelling series, held one Friday a month from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Tonight Gypsy Spark take the stage with the band’s southern-rooted music, nostalgic of 60's folk, with a dreamy element that intertwines flute, banjo, harmonica and acoustic guitar. With lyrics inspired by their love for nature and preserving the environment, Gypsy Spark will transport you to a thought-provoking realm. Their vast repertoire includes hundreds of original songs, and creative spins on familiar cover tunes, offering something for everyone. 

Storytellers Outlaw and Tigner will be on hand to share some of their favorite Southern tales and ghost stories. 

Outlaw is a former teacher and noted local historian, and will draw on Baldwin County’s rich cultural heritage for her tales from the past.

Tigner, who works with the Mobile Public Library, specializes in children’s stories. The Good Guys mobile food unit will be on site throughout the event with burgers, sandwiches, and wraps.

Bring a chair and enjoy an autumn evening in the park. Admission is $8 for adults and $4 for kids ages 6-12; kids under 6 are free. For more information or to purchase tickets in advance visit blakeleypark.com
