Festival on Tour

Festival on Tour

Nomadic artists carried the great myths and legends of world culture throughout Scotland and internationally.

 

Without travelling and sharing these tales, the oral tradition that preserved folk tales would not be what it is today, so the role of wandering storytellers, minstrels, explorers and pilgrims is reflected with the SISF Festival on Tour.

 

Coordinated by regional storytelling teams with the support of the SISF, our guest storytellers meet with local performers and audiences, offering a fantastic opportunity to experience in-situ storytelling across the country.

This also highlights the close links stories have with local tradition, landscape and history, plus there are several regional mini-festivals around the country, including Orkney Storytelling Festival, Portskerra International Storytelling Festival and Inverness Storytelling Festival.
