HEATHER YULE - traditional Scottish harp and story
Heather specialises as a traditional storyteller using harp music in a unique and exciting way to illustrate and enrich her stories. A vivacious storyteller, she is in great demand in schools and libraries throughout Scotland as well as performing and leading workshops at major international storytelling festivals. Heather began storytelling at a very young age inspired by her mother, who is both a folklorist and a professional storyteller. As a teenager she started learning the traditional Scottish harp (clarsach) with Savourna Stevenson. Heather then went on to study classical pedal harp and, after gaining a BMus in harp performance, began a career playing and teaching the clarsach professionally. However, she did not forget her love of storytelling. In 1998 she was selected as an apprentice storyteller within the Scottish Storytelling Centre's National Training Initiative Mentoring Scheme and since then has been developing and honing her skills as a storyteller/musician. Traditional Celtic folktales, stories featuring musicians, Traveller tales and international wonder tales form the basis of Heather's repertoire. Heather enjoys telling stories to children of all ages and adults.
