I want to learn some more Celtic stories. I am hoping this group will really flourish.

Thanks for starting this group Emma.

So far I only tell one Celtic story. A Scottish story from Skye. But I am working on my second and have a whole bookcase full of books of Celtic stories. Here's to more!

I am a Celtic Storyteller, although occasionally I tell a Skandi or Old Time Pioneer American story. My wife and I are also Celtic musicians, although lately I've been investigating other world traditional music and instrument making.
