Lost art of storytelling revived at '37 Flatwater Festival
STORY from Page 11
the underground railroad, the good ol'
Uncle Remus fables, were not soon
forgotten by America's youth. Though
seen as demeaning to the black people
of today Torrence, a jaded, large black
lady, said the stories are a "great
chunk" of the American heritage.
"The Story Lady" will perform Sat
urday and Sunday at 2 p.m. in the
College of Business Administration and,
for the late-night ghost story fanatics,
at the Sheldon Sculpture Garden from
9:30 to 11 p.m.
Bobby Bridger: From the blood
lines of the original mountain man, Jim
Bridger, descendant singer-writer-actor
and flatlands tour guide, Bobby Bridger
tells stories of mountain men and
Native Americans that comprize so
much of Nebraska's heritage.
Bridger tells of more than just legend,
however. His stories are laden with the
Native-American Indian philosophy of
harmony and reforming the social order.
Bridger said that the phrase "social
order" frightens people who don't un
derstand what he implies.
"A new order is a world where people
work in harmony rather than conflict,"
Bridger said in an interview with the
Omaha World-Herald.
Though Bridger normally combines
his stories with an excursion over
wilderness terrain, he will pull into the
Flatwater Festival for an hour or so at 3
p.m. on Sunday inside CBA.
Kathryn Windham: Because of
"Jeffrey" the benevolent poltergeist
nestled in her Selma, Alabama cottage,
Ms. Windham, then a working photo
journalist, took to the typewriter and
began to chronicle the appearances of
Jeffrey and 13 other Alabama appari
tions; thus, her first book of the same
title and an onset into the art of telling
ghost stories.
Windham, accompanied by Torrence,
will hurl the yarns of the supernatural
on what will probably be a hot and
muggy or hot and rainy Saturday evening
at 9:30 p.m.
Roger Welsch: Definitely a local
favorite. Welsch has been in and out of
the acadameia of the university, written
columns for the Lincoln Star, and has
written a number of books including
"You know you're a Nebraskan,"
"Cather's Kitchen," "Catfish at the
Pump," and "Mister, You Got Yourself a
Horse." Welsch's forte lies in the tall
tales of western and Nebraskan folklore.
Taking a short break from the res
toration of his house in Dannebrog,
Welsch will perform for an hour or so in
the CBA auditorium Saturday at 1 p.m.
Bob Manley. Residing as the senior
historian at the Stuhr Museum, Manley,
in contemporary style, relates to young
and old audiences the maladies of the
frontier travelers who tried to sell the
potential of Nebraska to the East coast.
Though often described as snake-oil
salesmen con artists Manley,
through years of research, discovers
that the people selling the wild Ne
braska Territory were not as shifty as
had been recorded. But the rest is for
him to tell.
Manley will turn the charm of the
1880's traveling salesmen loose on the
audience of all ages Saturday at 3 p.m.
and Sunday at 1 p.m.
