Mike O’Connor, musical contributor to the successful Poldark series and Barbara Griggs are masters in words and music – their most recent show ‘Return to Lyonesse’ received outstanding accolades for its seamless integration of these art forms. In this workshop they explore the world of music in stories.
Music has been used to enhance storytelling for thousands of years. Naqqali, the meddah, the skop, the bard, the traveller, and many more all use music in traditional forms of storytelling. You can use it too – the rewards are great but there are challenges and pitfalls to be overcome.
In this workshop, they often use very amusing musical examples of music in storytelling and they explain how you can make best use of music in your tales. This workshop is for both storytellers, musicians, and listeners. You don’t have to be a musician to attend!
