About the Event

Welcome to an eclectic night of ancient myth, contemporary storytelling, post-folk music, and physical artistry. Steeped in the traditions of Scottish storytelling, we evoke the warm atmosphere of peat-smoked hearthsides and ceilidh house revelry, presenting timeless motifs relevant to a discerning modern audience.

Join host Dougie MacKay as he invites a different selection of Scotland’s finest storytellers, songwriters, musicians, and performing artists to each bi-monthly Hearth Fire Session to create an innovative showcase of Scotland’s contemporary culture. For July's session, Dougie is joined by Norwegian musician Marit Fält, Bulgarian storyteller Nana Tomova and dancers Mirela Bozhinova and Denitsa Stamboliyska from Hop Trop- Scotland's Bulgarian Folk Dance Group.
