Stories and Songs from Three Celtic Homelands

Storytelling celebrating the Celtic calendar and local traditions

Spring Awakening: February 1, 2021

Storytellers Maria Gillen, Shona Cowie and Kama Roberts return with stories and songs from their Celtic Homelands.

This is the third event by the trio, in a series which celebrates the Celtic calendar of festivities through stories and traditions, old and new, from Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

This time the theme will be nature and nurture.

St Brigid’s day in Ireland is an important event and so this time Maria Gillen will be the host. With thanks to special guests: Paddy Reagan, Davóg Rynne, and Nuala Hayes.

The Return of the Light: December 20, 2020

We are delighted to be gathering in again to share stories from Ireland, Scotland and Wales. We will be recognising the wisdom of old traditions and making some new ones as we wish farewell to the year that has been and welcome in new light, warmth and intentions for the year to come. In the old times it was quite usual for people in Wales to set a spare place at the table for any unexpected guests, in this way we set a place for you-we invite you to eat and drink with us while you hear the stories.
