Richard Chase tells three "Jack" tales from the Southern Appalachians
Here is something unique I found. A Jack tale is just a big ole tall tale told by country folks, orally passed down through the generations. No telling how old some of these stories may be, especially since there are references in them to royalty, which makes me think they were likely made up in old England or Europe, possibly five hundred or more years ago.
Richard Chase does seem to have a talent for story telling. He has a plenty pleasant voice and seems very familiar with his material. Download and enjoy!
