Soutar Festival of Words

I’m delighted to announce that I’m taking part in this year’s Soutar Festival of Words. You can get tickets now from the @cpklibraries website https://bit.ly/cpksoutar22 #CPKSoutar22 #YS2022

Join storyteller Pauline Cordiner for family fun in the Soutar Festival of Words 2022 – expect upbeat tales of magic and mystery featuring famished fairies, havering heroes, mighty monsters and gralloched giants!

Pauline is a storyteller from the fishing and farming traditions of the North East of Scotland. She enjoys telling a variety of traditional Scottish tales, fairy tales, folk tales, creation myths and the occasional home-grown tale of her own.

Previous life in the oil industry and continuing involvement in living history allows her to share her enthusiasm for science, history, and the environment through her stories – occasionally incorporating the odd Scottish ballad, comedy song, or audience participation.

Pauline is a regular at schools, care homes, special needs groups, castles and museums, and festivals like Spectra, Glastonbury and Cambridge Folk Festival. Anywhere there is an audience for the stories she loves. Her current obsessions include sea monsters, imps, Vikings and tales of Scotland’s dark past!
