Story Ceilidh

Saturday 22 October 2016 @ 7:30 pm

Bettridge Centre, Newtonhill 

Saturday 22 October 2016


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
