A portrait of Martin Shaw the storyteller looking to camera

Martin Shaw is delighted to be joined for this special show by Liam O'Maonlaí.

Medicine House is the enchanting new show from award winning storyteller Martin Shaw. Stories are a kind of medicine, and each night Shaw decides which remedy to administer. Over an evening Shaw moves through electrifying renditions of fairy tales, Irish myths and accounts of his own life, including four years living in a tent exploring the last outposts of the Celtic landscape. Hilarious, moving and improvisational, no night is quite the same as the last.

His most recent book Bardskull was Book of the Day in The Guardian, The Sunday Times describing it as "rich & transgressive."
