Experience the eleventh annual Blue Heron Ghost Train from the comforts of your own home with your computer or smartphone! This year we will celebrate eleven years of storytelling at Blue Heron with five nights of talented local storytellers recorded and shared on the Big South Fork NRRA's YouTube and Facebook pages.

The first storyteller will perform on Saturday, September 11, at 8:00 PM (ET) with a different storyteller entertaining you each night through Wednesday, September 15. Hear chilling tales spun from the hills and hollows of the Cumberland Plateau, experience the beauty of Kentucky, and the solitude of Blue Heron Mine-18 while enjoying music performed by the Hughett Family.

Gather the entire family for this special annual event and help us celebrate this important tradition here on the Cumberland Plateau from the historical coal mining community of Blue Heron, Kentucky.

Featured Storytellers for 2021:
Robert Stephens
Park Ranger Jordan Hughett
Lounicia Hughett
Jim Buck
Beth Kilburn
