More about David:
David specialises in epics, myths and legends from the so-called «Dark Ages» or early mediaeval period including the Welsh Four Branches of the Mabinogion, the Norse mythological cycle, Beowulf, Wayland the Smith and also historical tales of sixth century northern British kings from Gwynedd to Edinburgh. He is keen to promote storytelling for the enjoyment of adults as well as children. Ghost and horror stories are his second favourite genre which he has collected from trips to Cornwall and Iceland as well as his native Cumbria.
To more fully recreate the voice of the bards, David’s translations of appropriate poems are interspersed in the narrative of such stories, as well as his own poems composed according to the rules of Anglo-Saxon and Norse verse.
Since 1985, David Brown has been telling stories in theatres, art centres, libraries, city farms and schools, in woods and fields, at camp sites and festivals from Orkney to Land's End and moved to Scotland in November 2003.
