Storytelling: Tales and Legends of Scotland at the SD Scottish Highland Games | Cultural
The Highland Games kick off with Tales and Legends of Scotland
Old quarrels. Misty moors. Spirits of the Highlands. Bagpipe. Violins. Magic. Scottish legends have all that and more with a special storytelling show to kick off the annual San Diego Highland Games.
Enjoy live narration as some of San Diego’s most acclaimed storytellers take the stage to tell tales of this ancient and storied land. Back by popular demand – James Nelson-Lucas, Aunt Li-Anne, Mindy Donner and Marilyn McPhie will entertain with traditional tales and legends from the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. New to this scene is Lissette Ryan, who pairs her tales with tunes on her harp. Also joining the evening’s entertainment is another beloved favorite – Rachel Amov, the Gypsy Fiddler, weaving her music around (and sometimes through) the stories.
Organizer Marilyn McPhie said: “I have once again fallen under the spell of Scottish stories during a visit to this ancient land. These tales will fill listeners with wonder, joy – and perhaps some chills. No one is ever too young or too old for a good story.”
Marilyn McPhie and Aunt Li-Anne will also share stories during games Saturday and Sunday at 11:00 a.m. and 2:50 p.m. in the children’s area.
The storytelling show will take place on the Beer Garden Stage at the Highland Games site, Brengle Terrace Park, 1200 Vale Terrace Drive, Vista, CA. Designed for ages 12 and up.
Tickets available on Eventbrite or at the door. $20 for adults; under 12, free. More information: 858-337-0990 or www.storytellersofsandiego.org
