Hanging With Storyteller Rab Fulton in The Virtual Síbín

Rab is a Galway-based storyteller who originally comes from Scotland. He specialises in reimagining Irish and Scottish myths, folklore and urban legends. His "Celtic Tales" summer sessions in Galway have a strong and growing local and international reputation. His new sessions begin in The Crane Bar in June.

His published books include:

"Galway Bay Folk Tales" published by The History Press Ireland in 2013. A collection of fast paced stories that reimagine the myths, folklore and urban legends of Galway Bay.

"The stores are retold in his distinct humorous and lively style" - Facts & Fiction magazine.

"Transformation" published by Dark Continents Publishing in 2012. This novella begins as a love story set in contemporary Galway. However, the tale darkens as a creature from Irish folklore intrudes violently into the lives of the young lovers.

‘A dark, supernatural story that manages to make you cry,
laugh and scare you to bits.’ - Galway City Tribune.

I enjoyed talking with Rab so much!  I can't wait to see him perform at the Crane Bar this summer, and to get his books!  One thing I should have asked you Rab...can you tell give us the English translation of the song the fairies were singing in your second folktale?

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I only caught the tail end of Rab, but it was well worth it! And Kelly, you're cute as a button!
