Storytelling Performances

Calgary Storytelling Perfomance “Wow! Your combination of warmth, humour and excellent storytelling abilities made listening (and learning!) an absolute pleasure.”            CAGP Conference Participant, United Way, Halifax

She has performed at various storytelling festivals, concerts and events in Canada, the USA, Scotland, England and Ireland. She tells traditional and contemporary Scottish stories as well her own stories.  And, having studied acting and spent a couple of summers, “treading the boards”, Norma tapped into this wisdom to write and perform a one-woman show, Coalmines, Council Houses and Corsets: The Life and Times of a Scottish GrannyThe play was adapted from her collection of stories based on her real-life Granny Jamieson (the most amazing storyteller Norma has ever heard) and was written in honour of her Granny who died in 1994.
