WHAT'S ON in AUGUST

Tom and George

TOM HUGHES & GEORGE MURPHY
"It's a TWO-FER!"
FRIDAY 26 August 2016

£7 admission

Shaggy Dog Storytellers present a
TWO-FER...that's a two for the price of one event!!!

Our featured tellers for the night are:

TOM HUGHES performs "THE PIPER'S TALE". The bagpiper strolls through the folk tales of Europe, sometimes the wise fool, other times a trickster, or prisoner of the underworld.  

Tom’s stories invite you into the piper’s world.  The collected tales of many years are shared, along with tunes on various bagpipes to awaken the legends.

GEORGE MURPHY performs " HIPPY VALLEY"

A selection of monologues and songs. This ebook collection has been compiled by Pennine Pens - connected to Heb Web.
Rather than adapting existing tales, George has invented his own characters and mini dramas, inspired by the recent history of Hebden Bridge and the surrounding towns and villages of Upper Calder. Along the way he has been learning the performance skills of an almost defunct but warmly remembered art form. He returns to his home venue for a celebration of life round here.

STORYTELLING

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.

If you want to know more, come and listen to the Shaggy Dog Storytellers presenting
TALES from the WHARF.
