The Scottish Storyteller

A rendition of Rabbie Burns' "To A Mouse..."

A reading of the Burns classic, Tam O'Shanter - The tale of a drunkard who falls afoul of supernatural forces on his way home from a night on the tiles.

The Scottish Storyteller reads "Why Ghosts Are Green", a poem by Scottish writer/poet/artist, Lydia Teasedale (

The Scottish Storyteller recites a poem called "Be Merry" by an unknown author, from a collection of poems called "The Rattlebag", compiled by Seamus Heaney. The poem itself is attributed to "Anon", but if anyone knows the correct author then I'll gladly credit them for their work.

My name's Tommy and I, as the channel name suggests, read stories and poetry from various authors, and in various styles. I've worked for 20 years in call centres and as a singer, so it makes sense to branch out and use my voice to express another of my loves: Literature.

I'm completely new to the whole reading aloud thing and haven't done anything like this since school, so please let me know what you think or if you can offer any advice to improve the channel.
