About the Event

Claire NcNichol left Lisburn in late 1986 and has lived away from home since then, but she always welcomes the chance to leap back across the Causeway to tell stories and sing songs, many of which she has been fortunate enough to learn in an unbroken oral tradition from Scottish Travellers such as Duncan Williamson and Stanley Robertson.

She tells Scottish and Irish stories including Traveller tales, Selkie tales, the wee folk and the giants. She also shares stories she has gathered on her travels to other places.
