NL Hometown Stories - Buffalo Commons Storytelling Festival




Once upon a time, 20 years ago actually, the Buffalo Common Storytelling Festival was born. Named for a theory that counties in the Great Plains would continue to dwindle in population and should be used as an ecological reserve, this story-telling festival formed to prove that there is indeed a vibrant life to be had in Red Willow County, and important stories to tell.

In this Nebraska Life Hometown Video, McCook residents Linda Crandall, Cloyd Clark and Mary Dueland discuss the origins of the popular festival that includes folklorists, poets, first-time storytellers and well-known masters of the art. Comedians and musicians are also part of the celebration that takes place in multiple venues in McCook.  

There are no fairy tales here. It’s all true. Mostly. The end.
