Event description

Description

Join members of Burgh Blatherers Storytelling Group for an evening of stories, music and songs to raise money and awareness for the Syria fund of Médecins sans Frontières, Doctors without Borders.

Like Médecins sans Frontières, storytelling has no borders. And like Scotland, Syria has a rich and ancient tradition of oral storytelling. In these times of suffering this storytelling tradition has revived, and has provided much needed emotional succour to the people of Syria.

Story Song Syria will celebrate the power of stories to entertain, mirror human experiences, and affirm identity. A member of Médecins sans Frontières will also be present to briefly illustrate their work and answer any questions.

The evening will be hosted by Harriet Grindlay, storyteller and musician, whose verve and enthusiasm will captivate our audience right from the start.

Marion Kenny, a charismatic performer, is one of Scotland's leading storytellers and a highly regarded multi-instrumentalist.

David Campbell and Andrew Coull are two of our several storytellers already well known to a large public, and here is how they like to introduce themselves:

“Seasoned and far travelled teller of Tales, David knows that the story is the expression of the brother and sisterhood of humankind.”

"Andrew is a Kirkcaldy based storyteller, and half of Suit and Pace Theatre. He loves over the top, theatrical storytelling from around the world and getting his audience involved in his performances."

See you there!
