The Fast Bull Stories

Jim Gregory was reared in the small mountain town of Monteagle in East Tennessee. He grew up listening to “Drummers” (salesmen) and local mountain folk gather around the cracker barrel at “Uncle” Jim Francis’ general store and swap lies. Everyone knew that they were lying but to catch someone they had to be able to prove it.

Telling stories, swapping lies, making up tall tales, and making music comprised most of the mountain folk’s entertainment, so it seemed only natural that Jim should take up the art. He has been a professional storyteller for the last fifteen years.

Jim has appeared at festivals and shows from South Florida north to Boston, west to Leadville Colorado and on the “high seas” aboard Holland America Cruise Lines in Alaska and the Northern Baltic. He is the president of the Miami Story-tellers Guild for the fifth time, a member of the Florida Storytellers Association's Board of Directors and was also a featured writer and storyteller for WLRN’s Pandemonium Midnight Uprising.

Jim’s "Fast Bull" stories are designed for listeners of all ages but best understood by older audiences. He is available for performances on a sliding rate scale.
