Explore the role of wandering storytellers, minstrels, explorers, and pilgrims. Journey with nomads and voyagers and be transported by Travellers’ Tales that span worlds of geography, fiction and landscapes of the heart.
The 2013 edition of the world’s leading storytelling festival traverses time and space, celebrating the myths and legends carried through wanderlust. Often despised and persecuted, nomadic artists carried the great myths and legends of world culture throughout Scotland and internationally. Now their art has experienced a contemporary rebirth worldwide.
Why not bring your tales and journey to Edinburgh, a city of stories, for ten days of enchantment, and immerse yourself in ancient traditions and modern magic.
The 2013 programme will be launched later this year, but to give you a flavour of the festival take a look at last year's video, blog posts and programme.
