TRISTAN AND ISEULT
told by Katy Cawkwell
Tristan & Iseult is one of the great love stories, spanning the lands and seas of Cornwall, Ireland and Brittany.
Hear afresh the rapture in music that drifts across the water, the tenderness of a healing touch, the passion in a game of chess,
the intimacy of an apple orchard and the thrill of clutching at your lover’s hand and fleeing to the wild secret places of this land.
Katy picks a clear, brilliant path through this many-layered legend,
mingling story with snatches of Gaelic song and
touching her listeners with the excitement, beauty and tragedy of this timeless tale.
“...mesmeric storytelling ...a wonderful story, beautifully told” Bridport Arts Centre

“a finely crafted, thrilling epic tale of love and loss… Katy conveys the thrills and sorrows of young love with skill and humour…” South Devon Storytellers
