Andrew MacKintosh specialises in traditional Highland folk tales, although there is a smattering to tales from other Scottish traditions in his repertoire, and a selection of international tales. Andrew's interest in storytelling rose from a long held belief that our own rich folk tale tradition is ignored in favour of other traditions. He feels that to fully appreciate these tales they should be heard - as originally intended - rather than read, for the living, personal experience that a storytelling performance can give.
Andrew MacKintosh has told stories in Highland schools, libraries and various fun days to audience ranging in size from two or three to 100+ and to ages from children to senior citizens. His philosophy is that everyone enjoys a good story well told. Andrew tailors his presentation to the needs of the audience. This can range from the traditional 'stool and story' approach to one using props to create a more theatrical performance.
Andrew MacKintosh is a native of Inverness and bas been storytelling for about eight years. Firstly, this was an addition to his teaching career but now, having left primary teaching after 18 years, he is a working storyteller. In addition Andrew runs Art, Puppetry and Drama workshops. He is available all the year and willing to travel anywhere.
