Spoken Word Album of Ghost Stories from Atlanta Released by Storyteller Cynthia Rintye
This spooky collection of finely crafted tales is based on paranormal activities in well-known places in the metro Atlanta area and told by a storyteller with over a decade of experience.
By: Cynthia Rintye
Rintye will tell several stories from her album at "Spirits & Spirits: Ghost Stories & Cocktails" at the Aurora Theatre in Lawrenceville on Monday, October 17 at 8:00 PM.
A storyteller for the Lawrenceville Ghost Tours since 2005, Rintye also led ghost tours in downtown Atlanta. Veil of Time, a collection of eight stories, features accounts of paranormal activity at landmarks like the Fox Theatre and Underground Atlanta—real ghosts in real places.
Other stories on Veil of Time are based on accounts told to Rintye by people taking her tours: witnessing three small ghosts running on the stairs at the Lawrenceville Female Seminary; encountering a terrifying, evil spirit at the old Georgia Mental Health Institute.
With a harrowing story about the deadly Winecoff hotel fire, which killed 119 people in 1946, the album is not intended for small children. The most poignant story, a favorite from the Lawrenceville Ghost Tours, tells of Elleck, an enslaved man who was executed after killing his master in self-defense, how his escape attempt is still visible in the old Lawrenceville jail, and how his ghost still haunts that building.
On the final track of the album, Rintye recalls a painful paranormal encounter she had in the Historic Lawrenceville Cemetery, where she leads Haunted Cemetery Tours on weekends in October.
Each story on the album is introduced with a brief bit of music creating a unique mood; a raucous bar band, a foreboding round, an unsettling music box.
"Spirits & Spirits: Ghost Stories & Cocktails", on the main stage at the Aurora, will feature three other storytellers:
Rintye's new CD, Veil of Time: Ghost Stories from Atlanta, produced by nationally renowned storyteller, Andy Offutt Irwin, will be available for purchase at "Spirits & Spirits" and will also be available on CDBaby.com.
