Strongly influenced by previous bards like Raifteri an Fhíle, Brian Merriman, and Aindrias MacCruitín, this storytelling show sees the wandering bard, with his rustic violin and other such accompaniments travel the roads of Ireland telling tales and short stories to eager audiences in the towns and villages of rural Ireland and across western Europe.

Aindrias’ style is a fast paced, lively innovative approach to the ancient Irish art form, yet his work is firmly rooted in the traditional storytelling styles of the west of Ireland. Inspired by his work in folklore, nature, and the traditional arts, Aindrias brings us on a journey through tales of villages lost to the sea, misadventures of wandering musicians, humorous recitations, abridged folkloric myths, and of course his own self-penned outrageous tales of otherworldly events.
