Tell a Tale

Tell a Tale is the website for storyteller Richard Martin, who specializes in telling traditional folk tales from different cultures. He has recordings of his stories available for purchase, as well as a collection of streaming videos of his spoken word performances.

The stories Richard Martin tells are the folk tales which have been told for hundreds, indeed thousands, of years. With over 300 stories in his repertoire, they reflect the full range of human experience: the comic, the bawdy, the profound, the divine.

Far from being for little children (although I do tell for children, too), these powerful and deep tales offer unforgettable listening for adults.

If you like theatre, you'll definitely love storytelling. It combines the intensity of a play by a solo performer with the intimacy of a one-to-one conversation.

Richard tells stories throughout Europe and as far away as India, Singapore, Hong Kong and America - in theatres, universities, schools, for corporate events or private parties.

He usually tells in English, although having lived in Germany since 1976, he is sometimes asked to tell in German.
