Pennsylvania Jack


Storytelling is one of the oldest forms of entertainment created by people the world over. Good stories just waiting to be told are abundant; good tellers of such tales are not quite so common. Pennsylvania Jack is one of those good tellers.

Pennsylvania Jack is the "alter ego" of Jack Graham, professional storyteller. Jack has performed at events at the State Museum in Harrisburg, Historic Bartram's Gardens, The Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation, Fort Freeland, Lehigh Valley Storytelling Guild, The Danville Iron Heritage Festival, Sherman Valley Days, and other such old-time events, historic festivals at many state parks and historic sites, local coffeehouse events, and for sportmen's clubs, civic clubs, historical societies, churches, senior centers, middle schools and high schools. Jack recently won a Blue Ribbon at the Perry County Fair.

Jack is always ready to share his tales with your school class, at your club meeting, workshop or historical event. Just contact him for details.

But in the meantime, you can enjoy some of Jack's stories right here on this website.
