U3A chair, Kathy O’Donnell remarked: “Scotland has a longstanding oral storytelling tradition.  Indeed, well known writers like Robert Louis Stevenson and Walter Scott are celebrated the world over.  Our members can enjoy hearing stories being told, according to the Scottish Travellers’ old proverb, “Eye to eye, mind to mind and heart to heart.”

Anne Pitcher, who is on the Traditional Arts and Culture Scotland’s Directory of professional storytellers said: “Scotland has such a rich history of oral storytelling rooted deep in its past.  Storytellers traditionally shared folklore, myths, legends and historical tales.  Today oral storytelling is a vibrant and active art form in Scottish culture, and one which I’m proud to be part of.”
