Whisperings of Ireland by Storyteller Batt Burns

Description:
As a child, Batt Burns experienced the seanachie (storyteller) tradition firsthand when he lived with his grandfather in the Hills of County Kerry, and heard him tell stories by the fire during the harsh winter nights. 

Today Burns helps to preserve that Irish heritage with haunting accounts of ghosts, great adventure stories, tales of heroes, farcical stories and witty jokes. In his recitations of poetry, he draws on the rich field of Irish poets including W.B. Yeats, Oscar Wilde, Patrick Kavanagh, Padraic Colum, Brendan Kennelly and Seamus Heaney.
