Diana tells traditional and modern tales from Scotland and around the world. Her sources are many and varied, including myths and legends, fables, animal tales and modern favourites.
Her interactive approach engages and stimulates her audiences and is tailored to what is most appropriate for the group or event that she is attending. To complement her voice, percussion, song, sounds or props may be used to highlight feelings, mood, atmosphere, weather, etc. Her aim is to create a vibrant atmosphere that can be magical, enchanting, haunting and inspiring.
Diana is always ready to explore new areas, enjoying the challenge of researching and preparing suitable material for specific projects and has collaborated with schools and libraries for events including World Book Day, author days and class topics.
Diana’s areas of focus are pre-school and children's groups of all ages, special needs groups with both children and adults, where she has a lot of experience, as well as adult groups and the elderly.
Diana has been entertaining using music, rhythm, song and story since 2001 through her business Once upon a tune, and storytelling since 2007. She views story as very much alive, a living breathing thing to be cherished and shared.
