Thread Name: Folklore: Favorite Storytellers?
Subject: RE: Folklore: Favorite Storytellers?
Through the letterbox this morning has come a flyer advertising a double CD by Stanley Robertson. It's called Rum Scum Scoosh and is published by the Elphinstone Institute of Aberdeen University at £16-00. www.abdn.ac.uk/elphinstone .

Disc one is made up of children's songs and disc two consists entirely of stories.

While I'm at it, I've no idea what the state of Séamus Ennis's discography is these days. However, as well as being a master piper and whistle player, he was also an accomplished storyteller. At least two of his LPs contain a good portion of storytelling and are worth checking on Ebay for secondhand copies.
