This Wednesday 26 January The Brewhouse welcomes back their one time storyteller in residence Michael Loader and his storytelling for adults company Wild Words, for their latest storytelling event Catching The Gypsys Tale.



Catching The Gypsys Tale, staged in the Main House, follows a number of storytelling for adults events at The Brewhouse, often delivered by the same company. However, previous Wild Words productions have been held in the Studio, making this Main House event their biggest yet.



The evening promises to bring spellbinding stories, theatre and fortune-telling accompanied by stirring music to follow the migration of the Gypsy people from their home of Rajasthan, through Arabia, the Balkans and Central Europe, until they reach the British Isles.



Told and played by storytellers Michael Loader (clarinet, recorder) and Sarah Mooney (harmonium) and musician Martin Solomon (sitar, fiddle and accordion), the stories come to life in these authentically set scenes.



Since 1988, Michael Loader has worked as a storyteller, teacher and performer within education, arts, corporate, community and charity based projects. He became storyteller in residence at The Brewhouse in 2007 and since the term ended in 2008, he and his company Wild Words have returned regularly with an array of wonderful shows.



Sarah Mooney, is a celebrated award winning storyteller who has done regular work on the SS Great Britain and was storyteller in residence at the The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre.



They are joined by Martin Solomon a multi instrumentalist from Bristol, who plays Celtic harp, fiddle, double-bass, sitar, accordion, mandolin and Theremin



Catching The Gysys Tale follows Michael Loaders latest piece at The Brewhouse, The Celts Are Coming, which he presented in collaboration with Anthony Nanson.
