Sheepshank Sam Cultural Event

As part of the Festival of the Arts, Ben Thompson presents “Sheepshank Sam: Old Time Michigan Lumberjack and Teller of Tall Tales” on Monday, February 19th at 1:00pm at Artworks. Ben Thompson portrays Sheepshank Sam, an old time shanty boy lumberjack who, using historical information sprinkled with tall tales, will transport you back in time to a lumberjack camp in Michigan’s northern wilderness during the late 1800’s. Participants will learn how trees were felled, cut into logs, skidded out of the woods, and floated down the river to the sawmill.
