Christine is a performer, storyteller and musician, currently studying for an MA in Folk Music in the Sibelius Academy, Helsinki. She uses live loops and voice, fiddle and banjo gently to blow away the thin layer of dust that has settled over old folk stories and songs, handling the delicate fabric of tradition with care and creativity.
Christine has toured internationally as a storyteller, and has completed a Masters degree exploring storytelling at Dartington College of Arts. She has performed in venues from castles to cafes, and in numerous primary schools. She has made two longer pieces for adults: A Fistful of Feathers, based on community research about birds, and The Battle of the Trees. Christine often uses her award-winning musical abilities in her stories, and teaches storytelling to children and adults. She likes to combine history, myth and community in her work. She has run regular storytelling clubs in Sheffield, Totnes, Brighton, and currently Helsinki.
