Guid Crack: Sand, Salt & Storms
with Ailsa Dixon (Part of Edinburgh Tradfest)
(Fri 28 Apr: 7.30pm)
Stories of the sea sweep along in a storm of sand and salt, with guest storyteller Ailsa Dixon. Edinburgh’s monthly storytelling club returns home to the upstairs of the Waverley Bar for a Tradfest special, with the usual open-floor section for anyone to share a story, song or poem.
Ailsa Dixon is a traditional storyteller and musician deeply rooted in place and passionate about sharing traditional tales and unheard histories. She specialises in Scottish stories, particularly those from Aberdeenshire and Orkney and is particularly interested in narratives with feminist and environmentalist themes, as well as international myths, legends and wonder tales.
