“Don’t miss this one folks!”
— Ol’ John Brown

Gary has been a wonderful friend of mine for many years and my mentor in storytelling so I’m truly tickled to share the news of his latest DVD with you!

This master storyteller’s books, plays and films are highly acclaimed; now in this special DVD, it’s Gary himself telling the tales!

Watch a clip here.

“An Evening with Mountain Storyteller Gary Carden” is available now.

To get your copy for $20, contact Gary at: gcarden498@aol.com

Don’t forget to drop by his website for some tales at the TanneryWhistle.
