Storytelling & Irish Song with Helena
Combining her love of Irish folklore and passion for Irish music, Helena Byrne regularly performs as a seanchaí (storyteller) and singer across Ireland & the US. Helena’s storytelling interweaves tales of the Other World and the mysterious Fairy Folk with traditional Irish songs and wonderful insights into the Irish life of days gone by. Whether you are a visitor to Ireland seeking to find out more about our rich culture, or part of the Irish diaspora family wishing to connect with your ancestry, this is the perfect activity for you.
