Seoras Macpherson's headshot

I was born in 1933 and raised in Greenock, Argyll and Skye began learning stories at age three. Since then I have learned and retold stories of many countries but specialise in Oral traditional stories of Scotland. I also do talks on second sight and healing science in stories. I wear the kilt either in its modern form or in ancient Phillimore style, usually on request. I have appeared at festivals in many parts of the world.
