Cardiff Storyteller and Singer Cath Little has “rough magic” in her voice and in her words “the gift of the story shines through”. She has a strong sense that stories have the power to connect us to one another, to the land and to the people who once lived here.
Cath has told stories at Festival at the Edge, Beyond the Border Storytelling Festival, Glastonbury Festival of Performing Arts, the BBC Proms Folk Day and Aberystwyth Storytelling Festival. She regularly tells at The National Museum of Wales. Cath helps run the Cardiff Storytelling Circle and curates their seasonal concerts, Tales for the Turning Year. She keeps busy telling stories in local schools and runs a Family Storytelling Club for her community. She also runs a storytelling circle at Oasis, a Cardiff charity which offers a warm Welsh welcome to refugees and asylum seekers.
Cath draws inspiration from The Matter of Britain, the native tales of these islands, from her Irish and English heritage and from her Welsh homeland. She is a proud Cardiffian and in 2017 published her reimagining of local stories in Glamorgan Folk Tales for Children. Cath is passionate about sharing these treasures, gifts from the ancestors and in her belief that the stories belong to us all and are meant to be heard.
