Riikka Palonen - Storyteller

As a child I discovered that storybooks could transport me to other worlds of fairytale, myth and magic. To this day I still enjoy visiting those faraway places, and as a storyteller I am able to take others with me on that journey.

For over 15 years I have been performing as a storyteller in Finland and in recent years in venues across the UK from Oxford to Orkney, and internationally from Morocco to Lapland.

I also work in collaberation with my husband, folk musician Richard Clarke to create our very popular song and story performances.
