Tales of a Grandson

Macrobert Arts Centre and Andy Cannon
in association with the Scottish International Storytelling Festival present;

Where do you begin to tell the story of Scotland?... with the myths, the legends and the battles? Or perhaps simply with the universal story of boy meets girl? 

Tales of a Grandson is one man’s re-telling of Scotland's history - but this is no straight and dusty history lesson. To tell this epic tale Andy Cannon (previously of Wee Stories) takes us on a time travelling adventure with his grandparents through Scotland’s past to piece together the myriad of Kings, Queens, friends and foes that make up our nation's story (and on the way unearths just why our mountains are so small!). Accompanying Andy and adding to the Tales are composer and musician Wendy Weatherby, Barrowland Ballet, a local cast of dancers, and some of Scotland’s finest young musicians, including performers from Stirling Féis.
