Teller and the Tale with actor and storyteller Ray Armstrong

This week my guest on the Teller and the Tale is actor and storyteller Ray Armstrong. Now in his 70s Ray lives in the Findhorn Community where he still takes an active role in organising theatrical productions, readings and taking visitors on tours of the Community.

Ray shares his memories of childhood, his dreams of living like Tarzan in the Norfolk forests, and his many years of working in the theatre including the famous Royal Shakespeare Company. Ray has a captivating voice and you won't want to miss him share his love of traditional tales.
