Richard Martin, and Englishman living in Germany, tells stories for adults and teenagers throughout Europe and as far away as India, Singapore, Hong Kong and America.
The stories I tell are very varied: trickster tales, fairy tales, wonder tales and jokes.
They are all traditional, and are drawn not only from Britain but many other lands.
The recordings here are of live performances for adults.
A typical theatre performance will have eight to ten stories. They are chosen firstly for their ability to grasp an audience, and secondly to create a wide range of atmosphere within the programme. Above all, a performance is part of the ancient culture of the storyteller, the weaver of fantasy, the spell-binder.
