The Travelling Talesman – Away with the Fairies

Thursday 8th May

Doors at 7pm // Performance from 7:30pm

Tales of the magical and mischievous Small Folk… and when they were not so small delving in to their origins as the godlike Tuatha De Danann.

The Travelling Talesman visited the Chapel in November 2013 for an mysterious evening of Goblins, Long Legged Beasties, join us for some more atmospheric oration from this beguiling storyteller this spring.

 

About the Travelling Talesman…

“I am a spoken word narrative performer of myths, legends, folktales and the occasional poem, a storyteller! My energetic and engaging performance is adapted on a per gig basis for a wide variety of adult and family audiences. I often conflate, edit or reorder stories and sometimes create entirely new tales, augmented with lyre and percussion when appropriate and for some shows live sample and loop.

I have toured the country from Penzance to York, for feasts, festivals and fun since the early nineties with tales of Norse Gods, Celtic mysteries, clever girls and dragon Slayers, medieval mayhem, giants, goblins and halloween horrors.

I originally specialised in Northern European tales but stories are now drawn from all over the world. I am constantly expanding my repertoir, reading myths from various cultures, chasing down unusual variations on folk tales and researching, learning or creating new adventures for special theme or site specific events.”
