Stories from Scotland

This is a drop-in storytelling event for families and is suitable for children of all ages. Come and enjoy fantastic legends, folktales and ghost stories from East Lothian. Lively tunes and tales that would have been familiar to the young Scottish soldiers who were captured and marched to Durham after the 1650 battle of Dunbar.

Heather Yule is a traditional storyteller and harp player based about five miles from the site of the battle. She is a long established accredited member of the Scottish Storytelling Directory and has travelled all over Scotland and abroad performing and specialises in combining storytelling with the music of the harp.

Heather grew up surrounded by traditional storytelling and music and began her love of telling stories at family ceilidhs as a small child. Then, as a teenager, she began learning the clarsach (Scottish traditional harp) and later developed her own unique way of combining traditional storytelling with the music of the harp. Heather is a long established accredited member of the Scottish Storytelling Directory and has travelled all over Scotland and abroad, including Iceland, Norway, Poland and North America, performing, teaching and leading workshops.
