The Teller and the Tale: a new episode with Druid storyteller Daru McAleece

In case you missed last week's broadcast of The Teller and the Tale featuring Daru McAleece on Blues and Roots Radio (www.bluesandrootsradio.ca), you can now listen at your leisure by clicking on the "Radio" link on my blog (http://michaelwilliamsstoryteller.blogspot.com/p/radio.html). In fact, all the Teller and the Tale shows to date are there for your listening pleasure.

This week's show features ex-Flock of Seagulls keyboard player Seán Pugh. Seán is not a traditional storyteller but rather a musician who tells stories through his instrumental compositions. His most recent release is called "Under a Weeping Willow" and features a collection of haunting and memorable melodies that invite the listener into an imaginative world of story and childhood memory.

Upcoming Teller and the Tale programmes will feature interviews and stories from an ex-Royal Shakespeare Company actor, a passionate storyteller from Lanark, and a former animator whose credits include "Who Framed Roger Rabbit".

Till next time, may the right stories find you for the telling.
