By the chattering stream a woman pulls on a dress of gold, while on a windswept beach a woman becomes a seal...
Storyteller, singer and musician Nick Hennessey unfolds folktales from all across these islands.
Nick will be telling tales passed down through generations, stories that would have been familiar to William Shakespeare himself:
Cap of Rushes, where a daughter tells her rich father she loves him as much as meat loves salt.
The Silkie, a tale of a strange creature, sometimes seal, sometimes human, and of the magical skin she sheds on the sandy shore.
The Russian story of the Firebird, a greedy Tsar and a hunter who rides a horse of power.
These kinds of stories have held us entranced and enthralled for hundreds of years, carried on the breath of storytellers from the far corners of the world.
Discover the words and worlds of Nick's stories, with videos and songs...
Suitable for ages 7+
Stay and Play...
