Stunning Sea Stories & Magic in May ...

Brough welcomes Bob Pegg on Sunday 28th May from 2-4pm

Bob is a storyteller and writer based in Strathpeffer. He has travelled all over the Highlands, to the Western and Northern Isles, and as far as Sweden and Iceland, telling traditional tales interwoven with music and song.

When Bob visits Brough, journeys and the sea will be his themes: the journey of the seal killer of Duncansby Head to a strange land beneath the waves; a trip across the North Sea from Denmark to the Pentland Firth, in a boat containing two giant girls and a magic mill stone; the fisherman who finds his lost daughter on a mysterious island hidden behind a wall of fog. Bob will also be paying tribute to the Norse roots of Caithness with one of his favourite stories, the Children of Loki.

Bob will be playing music on the Viking lyre and his haunting Native American flutes. He will wonder about the earliest music, coaxing astonishing sounds out of stones and shells from the northern beaches, and he is sure to finish his performance with what, he believes, could compete with the bagpipes as the national musical instrument of Scotland.

We are delighted that the Spirit of Caithness has support this event

Come and join us for the fantastic afternoon for all the family. As well as Bob's stunning stories, there will be music and jokes provided by some of the younger (and perhaps a few older!) members of the Brough community.  Refreshments provided.
