The tales we tell ourselves can bind us. As a traditional storyteller, I enjoy retelling old tales for our times.
Here are some of my favourites:-
A traditional story from Georgia in Eastern Europe, first retold at Rainbow 2000 Festivals
A tale of three daughters, first told at Hugglescote Parish Council's Rogation service accompanied by Harmonic Curve
A cautionary tale for public sector innovators, first told at the Leicestershire launch of 'Books on Prescription'
A true story from Hugglescote, Leicestershire, that explains why a silver tree stands at the gateway to the Parish.
First retold at a Belfast Harp Festival accompanied by students of the Derwent Harp School
The story of Coalville's hero, retold to celebrate the first blue plaque and inform the residents of a new street named after this important social reformer
One of a series of harp-related stories. This one had its first outing on HermitageFM's Folk Show
A traditional Russian Christmas story, first retold for the children of Belvoirdale Primary School

If you want to tell them yourself, boil them down to the bare bones, then add your own skin. That's real storytelling for you.
