Calum Lykan - Scottish Story Teller

Thursday, June 7, 2018

Join us in listening to Calum Lykan, the Scottish storyteller.

As a Traditional Scottish Storyteller, Calum doesn't read from a book but instead uses his knowledge, passion, and love of stories to engage with the audience and create a unique experience with endless possibilities.

 

Born and raised in Ayrshire, he benefited being surrounded by the stories of this rich and beautiful area. Travelling like a Bard across the country, he eventually ended up in Edinburgh where he found and developed his passion as a professional Storyteller and Tour Guide. Now spending most of his time in Canada Calum is continuing this tradition.

 

He's been a regular contributor to storytelling evenings such as Cafe Voices and The Guid CrackStorySlamsand local Tellarounds in both Scotland and Canada. Calum is also the founder of The Burgh Blatherers, a storytelling group for up and coming storytellers in Edinburgh where they can test their stories and build confidence.

 

He's told stories in a wealth of locations from libraries, schools, community centers, public houses, theaters, festivals, the streets, in distant lands, and even in ancient Redwood Forests, and loved every minute of it.

?

Often found in the traditional Feileadh Mòr ( the Great Plaid), Calum specialises in Scottish Tales but can also transform into a scallywag Pirate, a wild Barbarian, or a Viking Skald.

 

His passion for stories and love of history makes him a fantastic choice for your event
