Nick Hennessey

Nick Hennessey came to storytelling whilst undertaking field research for a PhD in Cultural Geography. At this time he became a professional singer, songwriter and storyteller with a fundamental interest in the relationship between landscape, communities and stories and the re-invention of tradition. He has been telling stories for more than 20 years, performing at venues such as the South Bank Centre and Royal Albert Hall. He is particularly inspired by North European cultural traditions and has been awarded high honours in Finland for his work on their National Epic, Kalevala.
