Island Odyssey: Scotland and Old Europe
Be ready to set sail for a land between sea and shore where Greek and Roman myths mix with sagas of the Celts!
The Festival unites the Scottish Isles with the shores and islands of the Mediterranean in an exchange and discovery of cultures and traditions, tracing the story of travel through the famous voyager Odysseus, whose epic expedition is revealed and explored throughout the Festival, while old routes are reconnected in the Year of Scotland's Islands with ‘Island Nights’ evenings offering the best of live entertainment.
The visiting European tellers will join with the best of Scotland’s artists at the Scottish Storytelling Centre, right at the heart of Scotland’s Festival City, for ten days of outstanding performances, and they will also embark on journeys to Skye, Bute & Arran, Inner and Outer Hebrides, Shetland and Orkney. Follow them and travel on to Scotland’s Islands for the full festival experience and continue this fantastic journey.
