An Evening of Storytelling
with Jack Lynch, Michael Harvey, Kate Corkery & Eloho Rose Egwuterai

Following last year’s sold out event the Festival, in association with Storytellers of Ireland, is delighted to once again present an enchanted evening of multicultural stories; celebrating one of the oldest art forms in the world.

Eloho Rose Egwuterai
Eloho is from the Delta State in Nigeria, receiving her beguiling collection of folktales from her father, who grew up in the village of Ibrede. “It was always so exciting. He had a way of taking me to places and times I’d never been”. Currently living in Dublin Eloho has been a special guest of the Dublin Yarnspinners and told to great acclaim at Guthanna Éagsúla in the Axis Theatre.

Kate Corkery
Originally from Cork, Kate is the Resident Storyteller at the Hammersmith Irish Centre. She has lived and worked extensively throughout Europe and in Kenya. Her repertoire includes Celtic myths, legends and folktales and stories from around the world. Kate can deliver a ghost story, that most elusive of forms, like few others on these islands.

Michael Harvey
Michael Harvey is renowned for his mastery of the rich story lore of Wales. He brings humour, skill and a great sense of enjoyment to his telling. One of the UK’s leading contemporary storytellers, he works regularly with dancers, musicians, visual artists and many major cultural institutions, as well as with performers from Brazil, India and Europe.

Jack Lynch
Artistic curator and MC of the Festival’s Evening of Storytelling, Jack is one of Ireland’s best-loved performers, Jack has told throughout Europe, in the Caribbean and the US. His style is rooted in Ireland’s rich oral seanchaí tradition, combining folkloric elements with ancient Irish myths and tall tales. Jack is a founder-member of Storytellers of Ireland/Aos Scéal Éireann and the Dublin Yarnspinners and is an artistic curator of the Farmleigh International Festival of Story and Song.

Lots of other things on all day

I hope to get to the Tipi Making, for one, and enjoy the food and crafts along with so much entertainment, a kind of World Glastonbury
