Dominic Kelly: A fiddler, queens before kings and the wet seat left behind

In this first episode of the Storytelling Radio podcast, Georgiana Keable speaks with Dominic Kelly.

Dominic’s warm, precise and powerful storytelling style has captivated audiences around the world. In the UK he has performed at venues including the Barbican, National Theatre and British Museum. He has directed storytelling performances for Oslo’s Riksscenen and is a guest lecturer in storytelling at Sweden’s Royal College of Music.

Growing up in the relative wilds of England’s Lake District, he has a passionate interest in the links between stories, landscape and the natural world. And when not telling stories he still thinks sitting in a tiny tent on a mountaintop in terrible weather counts as fun.
