Tales in Music & The Stories of Spider Woman
Tales in Music & The Stories of Spider Woman is a double-bill of wondrous storytelling experiences.

Tales in Music performed by Ailsa Mair Hughes

Beautiful landscapes painted with lilting melodies; haunting chords calling you in a lustful lure; treasure that sparkles in song and heroes that staccato past danger - a bewitching alchemy of tales told through the majesty of music.

Stories of Spider Woman performed by Deborah Ward

A collection of 3 stories from Native American peoples. Inspired by the need for the modern definition of womanhood to be re-imagined, Deborah is excited to bring to life aspects of feminine power which are mysterious, dark, elder, wise, sensitive and terratorial:  Portrayed in these ancient stories - qualities which, perhaps, are not always attributed to womanhood in modern narratives.

Deborah brings physicality, poetic moments and a sense of conversational close-ness with her audience.

Come and be entranced - "a magical teller" - "the best telling I have seen" -"she transforms her body completely" - "I felt swept away in joy and then sorrow"

--->Previous audience quotes from performances at West Country Storytelling Festival, Into The Wild Festival, The Cube, Folk Tales and Storytelling Sunday at Hamilton House.

Doors open at 7pm
Tickets: £10 / £8 Conc.
Running time 50 minutes

----- Biographies -----

Ailsa Mair Hughes

Ailsa Mair Hughes is a freelance musician classically trained and somewhat untamed through years of playing in woodlands and singing to (or in) the sea.  

Most known for being a cellist-singer-songwriter-improviser, she has spent many many many of the last moons collaborating with storytellers, including Martin Maudsley, Sarah Mooney, Deb Winter, Michael Loader, Peter Stevenson and Milly Jackdaw, and recently the festival director Daniel Balla.  She has performed/composed for several years with the magical Bristol-based outdoor aerial theatre company Whispering Wood Folk, with whom she will be touring new show The Boy Who Grew Wings this Summer (Leigh Woods 8th & 9th September).  

Ailsa also plays the bass viol/viola da gamba and after a season of depping in RSC Cymbeline has just formed and debuted (at the Aberystwyth Storytelling Festival, in fact) an exciting duo, Tinc y Tannau, with fellow musician/composer Sianed Jones to let loose the beauty and mischief of two bass viols & two voices in harmony.
   
Now based in mid-Wales but a nomad at heart, Ailsa looks forward to returning to one of her many homes, Bristol, to share with you her solo tales through music, many of which were birthed during adventures in the storytelling realm. Elusively genre-defying, discover the exquisitely varied extended soundscape of the cello woven with a voice that loves to travel and take you with it to unexpected places!

Deborah's passion is how playfulness leads to creative acts whether on stage or in life. For her this work starts with body-connection, nurturing my imagination and being willing to be bold.

Deborah graduated from London International School of Performance Art, LISPA, in 2011. Since then she has worked as an actress, storyteller, performance poet, assistant director, casting director, director and independent producer.
