Corryvreckan: Inspiralled Tales

by Fiona Herbert, with Emma Durkan

Explore Scotland’s mythical heritage as storyteller Fiona Herbert tells the tales surrounding the Corryvreckan whirlpool through the eyes of the much maligned and misunderstood Cailleach, the ancient Gaelic creation goddess. In doing so, she dives beneath the lies to celebrate female power, the true value of old age and the wisdom of the wild.

Written and Performed by Fiona Herbert. With harp, fiddle and song from Emma Durkan..

Supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.

Filmed at the Scottish Storytelling Centre.

Part of the Voyage series - A Nation Shaped by the Sea

Over centuries, real and imaginary voyages have connected Scotland to other coastal countries, near and far. Some of the story treasures that arrived and departed with them are now presented in this special series of traditional storytelling events celebrating Scotland as a nation shaped by the sea. Specially developed for the SISF 2020 by Scottish based storytellers and musicians, the performances are presented as live from the Netherbow Theatre, at the Scottish Storytelling Centre or on location where the stories are set. Experience some of Scotland’s best storytellers and musicians in the flow as they shape these incredible tales.
