This is a short first podcast. It is an introduction to Duncan Williamson and a little of me learning of how to podcast from podcast expert, Hannah Hethmon.
My name is Amy Douglas and I am a traditional oral storyteller. I learned much of my craft from Scottish Traveller storyteller, Duncan Williamson. I'm currently digitising boxes and boxes of reel to reel tapes he gave me with help from the School of Scottish Studies. Here is a first story from that archive and an introduction to who Duncan was.
In future podcasts I will be sharing more of Duncan's stories and meeting up with other storytellers and artists influenced by Duncan to talk about why - and if! - his stories are still relevant today.
