Carol Scorer's headshot

Carol is a performance storyteller and percussionist, often weaving these two artforms together. Having worked in professional community theatre for many years, she is also an experienced facilitator, teacher and trainer. She performs storytelling for both adults and children of all ages. She loves stories from all over the world and especially those passed on from the oral tradition.

She has created inter-generational community oral storytelling events in Speyside and Moray and is currently developing a local-based socially engaged arts project about the rhythm of walking and remembering, landscape and dwellings, and beginnings and endings. Current storytelling events include The Fox Woman and Other Stories including Finn McCumhaill, and The Salmon of Wisdom, Celtic tale of poets, warriors and druids from a female perspective - ancient tales for modern times.
