STORYTELLING SESSION: LESSONS
August 4 @ 7:30 pm
We had a fantastic turn out for our most recent session on Wednesday, 2nd August, with a guest from Sweden joining us to listen in!
We heard about Dr John Feehan who was a witch in North Berwick in the late 1500s. He was unusual as he was the local school master! We discovered what happened when he cast a love spell on an unsuspecting young woman.
A true story from even further in the past, from the mid 1400s, “Life Lessons” and one set in the local area, “Every Day’s a Learning Day” were also told.
Two poems were recited by long standing members. One was by Liz Lochead called “Bairnsangs” and the other was an original composition named “School’s Out”.
And last but not least, a story about a jealous husband who consults the local wise woman of Affrick Castle about his son’s true paternity, learns the awful price of dealing with….. THE DEVIL!
