Alexandria Patience & Donald McNeill
Suitable for all
Story Ceilidh is a multi-themed storytelling performance using mainly traditional Scottish stories and live original music.
Alexandria Patience is the storyteller – originally from Fraserburgh but with fisher family connections to the Black Isle and to Lewis. She is now living in the Far North.
Music is created by multi-instrumentalist, Donald McNeill on keyboard, guitar, mandola, fiddle and banjo.
No show is exactly the same since the venue and location inspires the selection of stories and in true storytelling style – it also infuses the telling.
Story themes cover: humour, love, the past, the second sight, local events, social history, selkies, the sea, the fishing, betrayal, innocence, morality, folk tales, spey wives, body snatchers, relationships – all aspects of life, but I connect the themes to the community I am performing in.
Please feel free to bring your own instrument or a story you would like to share
Family of 4 £28 (max 2 adults)
