Michael Harvey
Michael is a familiar performer in the UK storytelling festival and club scene. His repertoire is international in nature, though he draws particular inspiration from the Welsh oral heritage and landscape, and also has an interest in bi-lingual storytelling.
, ,

Michael has told stories both as a solo performer and with other artists throughout the UK and Europe as well as storytelling festivals in North and South America. Most of his work is in either English or Welsh and occasionally both at the same time! He is a familiar performer in the UK storytelling festival and club scene and draws particular inspiration from the Welsh oral heritage and landscape. He combines depth of material with lightness of delivery which is timed and paced to perfection and minted fresh for every audience.

He works as a storyteller throughout the education sector from nursery to degree level courses and leads literacy follow up sessions for pupils in primary and secondary schools and devises community projects delivered with other artists. He also offers training for would-be and experienced storytellers.

Michael’s recent work includes developing and touring the show Dreaming the Night Field/Breuddwydio’r Cae Nos (from the Fourth Branch of the Mabinogi) with the production company Adverse Camber. This show follows on from the successful tours of another Mabinogion based show Hunting the Giant’s Daughter, a version of Culhwch and Olwen. These two shows are performed with Stacey Blythe and Lynne Denman, two recognised figures in the Welsh folk world.
