New shows and storytellers at The Teller and the Tale

Since July 2013, I've had the pleasure of interviewing a dozen Scottish storytellers for my show The Teller and the Tale. The show is broadcast three times a week on Blues and Roots Radio (www.bluesandrootsradio.ca) based near Toronto Canada.

As an Internet station, the show can be heard around the world; in fact, listeners have written in from as far away as India, Australia and the Solomon Islands in the Pacific. The feedback has been positive and encouraging and while I will continue to feature Scottish storytellers, I'll soon be reaching out to include storytellers from our global village.

In the meantime, click on the 'Radio' link and catch up on some of the new shows featuring such guest storytellers as Roger the Rabbit animator Roger Way, therapeutic storyteller Elly Stuart, poet and Highland storyteller Margot Henderson, award-winning children's author Janis Mackay, and more.

And if you're a storyteller with a story to share, please get in touch with me. Contact.

Thanks!
