  • Local lass to return to Broch for event
  • Dalrymple Hall to host ‘Story Ceilidh’ on May 29
  • Event will also be at New Pitsligo Village Hall on May 31

A Fraserburgh Born artist will be returning to her roots with an evening of stories and music next Friday.

Alexandria Patience, who grew up in the Broch, will bring ‘Story Ceilidh’ to Dalrymple Hall on May 29 as well as to New Pitsligo Village Hall on May 31.

Story Ceilidh is a traditional Scottish stories performance event with live original music and generally is found to have a wee twist of something local.

Inspired by ‘traditional storytellers’ and by research at The School of Scottish Studies, Edinburgh and each performance unique.

Alexandria tells some of the big traditional stories but told from a woman’s point of view and tops and tails heart tugging drama with a bit of a laugh and an occasional song.

She was awarded a Creative Scotland Traditional Artist support 2012-3 and has toured internationally as a performer and storyteller. In 2014 she was invited to create and perform a storytelling event in Calgary, Canada.

Funny, dark and it can even be a bit disturbing within the safety of a ceilidh style storytelling and music performance Story Ceilidh is a must for fun and to understand the Scotland we live in and where we have come from.

The event at Dalrymple hall will start at 7:00pm while the New Pitsligo Village Hall show will be at 7:30pm.
