The Dawson County Public Library will soon play host to a nationally known singer and storyteller.
Adam Booth is a nationally renowned singer of songs and teller of tales - especially those of Appalachia where he was born and raised," said library representative Tracy Walker.
Booth will be performing "Stories of Appalachia" at 11 a.m. April 18 at the Dawson County Public Library.
"Adam is an award-winning performer who has studied music with old-time traditional Appalachian musicians," Walker said. "He will share his expertise on the dulcimer during his library performance, as well as weaving stories."
Booth has also appeared in major conferences and festivals across the country, including being featured as a Teller-in-Residence at the International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough, Tennessee, according to Walker.
He is known for blending of story, education and traditional music.
The free program is recommended for adults and teens and is sponsored by the Friends of the Dawson County Public Library.
