Teller and the Tale with guest storyteller Peter Snow

Storyteller Peter Snow
This week's guest on the Teller and the Tale will be Edinburgh storyteller Peter Snow.

Peter is a former Steiner School teacher, poet, musician and ex-psychiatric nurse. Oh yeah, he was also once a goatherd! And he lives in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Our listeners have sent in some questions which I put to Peter recently and here are his answers.

1. What called you to be a storyteller?
Storytelling for me arose out of teaching, but I was knocked out by a storytelling performance by Ashley Ramsden, and went on a short course that he led many years ago.

2. What was the last story you told?
The last story I told was that of Parzival the Grail Knight.

3. Who is your favourite storyteller?
My favourite storyteller? Too wide and various a selection to choose from, but I like Michael Williams, David Campbell, Ruth Kirkpatrick, Claire McNichol, Janis Mackay, Andy Hunter, Noel Cochrane, Daniel Allison especially.

All the best!

Peter
