Donald Smith

Donald Smith heard his first traditional tales as a child, but has been an active student of Scots and Irish storytelling for over thirty years. He has made a special study of the tales and legends of the Celtic Saints. While he tells mainly Scots and Irish folk tales, he is also interested in recovering oral stories from the literary manuscripts of a variety of cultures. He is also interested in the recovery of local storytelling traditions, in site-specific events and story walks, and working with community and church groups. He is a founding director of the Scottish International Storytelling Festival (SISF)
