Tristan and Iseult retold by Katy Cawkwell
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. Katy has been storytelling for 20 years across Britain and beyond: she is well -known for unraveling complex narratives into compelling, glittering stories that linger in the mind long after they are told.
