Jackie Ross is an Aberdeenshire ‘quine’, born and bred. A farmer’s daughter and a farmer’s wife, she has a love of the countryside and a passion for local lore and traditions. Her story repertoire is strongly influenced by her background; she tells stories of the land, trees, plants and animals as well as traditional Scottish stories and folktales from across the world. Where appropriate she enjoys delivering local tales and legends in Doric, her ‘mither tongue.’ She has worked on various community storytelling projects in conjunction with local schools, heritage groups, environmental groups and ranger services. These projects have used stories as a means of encouraging participants to relate positively to their local heritage and environment.
