"Songs & Stories from the Glens"
FRIDAY 31 July 2015
This month, we welcome the warm and wonderful Irish storyteller Feargal Lynn.
Through his tales, spoken and sung, he keeps alive the stories of those that have gone. Feargal grew up under the feet of the characters visiting his parents' shop and was transfixed by their tales from the glens and the stories they told about each other in a time when no one was in a hurry. Intertwines stories with his own songs and songs rarely heard.
The hunger for narrative is a basic human instinct. Stories help us make sense of the world and give structure and order to our everyday lives. They tell us what is important, what is not and give us a way to connect people's individual experiences to those of others. They help us identify with universal truths. Stories are a way we put a human face on the world, which is something we have always needed and valued. Some of our most profound decisions are made emotionally, not rationally. Stories tap into emotions better than anything else.
