SONG OF LILITH: a weekend telling with Shonaleigh

13th-15th May 2022 in Mynydd Llandegai at the Neuadd Goffa/Memorial Hall, Gwynedd LL57 4LQ.

Lilith has always fascinated us. Is she a demoness or goddess? A wronged woman or strong wife?

You are invited to a unique, immersive weekend of storytelling for adults with Shonaleigh, the world-renowned tradition bearer and storyteller.

This is a rare chance to hear these ancient tales in the light and on the tongue, stories untold for two generations and barely spoken of for decades.

Shonaleigh is a Druts’yla, and carries on a living unbroken oral tradition passed down from grandmother to granddaughter. She knows around 4,000 tales that she can recall on request, using the lost art of ‘stories within stories’.

This is an unmissable opportunity for anyone interested in stories or in oral and lost cultures to come and help document and archive this tradition through listening, requesting stories, and asking questions.

Join us either for the whole weekend, or for the Saturday evening only.
