Charismatic live storytelling performer Kenny from Scotland to enthrall audience at Chennai World Storytelling Festival
Noted Scottish storytelling trainer and performer Marion Kenny has come from Edinburgh, Scotland, to participate in the on-going 12-day Storytelling Festival-2019 being organized in Chennai of Tamil Nadu, informs the director of local World Storytelling Institute Eric Miller.

It is told that Kenny - is a charismatic live performer - will be performing on 5th February  at 5:30 pm at the British Council, Anna Salai, to highlight the "Female Characters in Fairytales and Epics of Scotland and Ireland"  and then on the 10th February  at 4:30pm at Nungambakkam in the city as part of a program of '7 Storytellers'.

"Scotland is one of the most advanced countries in the world when it comes to the Govt supporting and promoting Storytelling. Storytelling is seen and treated by the Scottish Govt as a treasured part of the national heritage and culture," Informs Miller while adding that 150 professional storytellers are listed in a National Directory certified by the Scottish Storytelling Forum and Kenny is an official of the forum as well as a performer and trainer.

With the growing popularity of the festival, the revival of storytelling tradition in India is taking place. However, it worth noting that the Scottish Govt ensures that a professional storyteller visits (on an ongoing, regular basis) every single school in the country. Moreover, many museums, parks, and other cultural and nature-related institutions work with Storytellers in Scotland.

Kenny is a 'charismatic live performer, highly regarded multi-instrumentalist, master storyteller and inspirational trainer', informs a post on the web.
