About An Appalachian Christmas Carol
It is the second greatest story ever told…that’s what some folks say about Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. Clark Taylor, who performs all parts of this theatrical event, adapts the Christmas tale of love and redemption with a distinctively Blue Ridge Mountains flair to create An Appalachian Christmas Carol. Over the years, Taylor has created iterations of this piece for organizations near and wide; he cites Fred Craddock as a tremendous influence in this new interpretation of the story.
