SILKIE'S GRAVE

Posted: Friday, December 20th, 2013

Earlier this year I was invited to make a podcast for Fuel Theatre’s While You Wait series.

I’ve been very fortunate to have access to rare private archive recordings of the great Scottish Traveller storyteller Duncan Williamson and I’ve written and recorded original music to his telling of a little known traditional Hebridean ghost story, The Silkie’s Grave.

For further reading and more of Duncan’s Silkie Tales, please look out for Land of the Seal People (Birlinn 2010), edited with a new introduction by Duncan’s widow, Linda Williamson.
