Mt. Blue Community Access Television and Western Maine Storytelling have partnered to bring “Telling Tales: Western Maine’s Storyplace” to the airwaves.

Since debuting in May 2019, 14 half-hour programs have featured outstanding storytellers from its area, state and region. Many different types of stories are told, ranging from historical, family and personal to fairy tales and folk tales. Poets, authors, musicians and mimes also display their skills as storytellers, according to a news release from Mt. Blue TV.

Most recently is Tony Perry, author of “State of Maine: State of Mind. Upcountry Humor and Stories.” He reads stories from his book that are at times humorous, other times heart wrenching, while giving some very interesting background information.

Residents of Farmington, Jay, Livermore Falls and Wilton can access the shows on Channel 11. All can access the Telling Tales programs on the Mt. Blue TV website, at
