Global Hearth: Michael Kerins with Markus Luukkonen, Tamar Eluned Williams & Csenge Virág Zalka
Scottish hosts invite international storytellers to gather round the digital hearth for relaxed sessions of stories from home and abroad. The perfect way to end (or begin) your day!
Hosted by Michael Kerins, with Markus Luukkonen (Finland), Tamar Eluned Williams (Wales) and Csenge Virág Zalka (Hungary).
Michael Kerins tells tall and fantastical stories, blending folktales and contemporary life. A self-confessed “wacky” storyteller, his style breathes the humour, cheek and survivor’s instinct of folktales through the centuries. He is currently enjoying writing about wee tom and sharing his tiny adventures in classrooms and community settings in Scotland and further afield.
Markus Luukkonen studied performing arts in Helsinki and tells stories in clubs, theatres, galleries and festivals. He performs predominantly for adults and in his work he likes to mix personal stories, folktales and myths. He is a founder member of the Finnish Storytelling Association, Samova Storytelling.

Csenge Virág Zalka
