Anne Hunter's headshot

Anne tells traditional myths and tales from Scotland and around the world - funny recitations, stories of strong women, and stories of the heart. Inspired by her late husband, storyteller Andy Hunter, she also likes to tell stories in, and of, place, stories which reveal and explore our relationship to urban and rural environments.

Anne has a warm, friendly and collaborative style and as a singer and musician brings her musical and artistic skills to enhance her stories. As an artist, art psychotherapist and Talking Mats-accredited trainer, Anne has shared and facilitated stories with a diverse range of people in Scotland, UK, Europe and America. She has many years of experience of working with adults with learning disability and mental health problems, and as a storyteller she is happy to work with children and adults with and without additional support needs. She is a frequent teller at the Guid Crack Club, Café Voices, and Woodland Wheels cycle ride events in Glasgow and Edinburgh and performs regularly with the Burgh Blathers.
