Scotland's Year of Stories Project: Stories from the Kist

Tobar an Dualchais/Kist o Riches organised two storytelling events in May 2022 as part of Scotland’s Year of Stories. A workshop was held for people interested in storytelling to help them develop their storytelling skills with assistance from two highly experienced storytellers, Donald Smith and Ruth Kirkpatrick, who told stories from the many to be found on the TAD/KoR website. ‘Stories from the Kist’ was a special evening of storytelling in Scots and Doric in which three of Scotland’s most gifted storytellers Jess Smith, Tim Porteus and Jackie Ross told stories relating to nature and place, using stories from the website as inspiration.
