There are 45 stories from 36 Scottish storytellers in Tales On The Tongue. But a story told aloud is usually different from the same story put down on a page. Compare the 11 stories on this CD with the printed versions from the same storytellers, not just the words used, but the emphases, energy, variety of voices, small sound effects and actions.
