Calum … A Storyteller in the Ancient Sense (a Bard)

Table Rock

Calum’s voice stirs latent memories.  Timbre and cadence and phrasing bring stories to life. He was born a storyteller, a troubadour as in the ancient oral traditions of the Celts.  Imprints of words, made vibrant, linger on the air.

 

Colin’s portrayal of this damaged boy was exquisite.

    • Maycinq … thank you for the head’s up!! I’ve been working on two posts: one for Cathal, one for Calum. I’m embarrassed, but so glad you caught it before it had gone too far. Corrections have been made. Thanks again! 🙂 ❤
