Hand and Word

Featuring Storyteller
P. D. Brown.

Welcome! I am a storyteller, a part of the revival of this traditional art

All peoples have produced their tellers of tales but sadly, in western culture, oral storytelling was eclipsed by the advent of cinema, radio and television.
Even books and widening literacy contributed to its decline.

There are many kinds of oral story; wonder tales, folk tales, ghost and horror stories, jokes, fables and epics. I can tell these different types of tales from many lands.

My favourites however, are the myths, legends and sagas of the peoples who settled the British Isles in the distant past. Their storytellers wrought new tales of great loves and heroic deeds, and continued to tell the old tales, brought with them across the sea, stored in the memories of the Celtic bards, Anglo Saxon scopas and Viking skalds.
These are the tales I especially love to rework for today's audiences, young and old, while keeping true to the style and spirit of how they were told, around flickering hearths, on winter nights, long ago.
