The Teller and the Tale features Scottish storyteller and music teacher Alec Miller

On the Teller and the Tale this week, I offer a "rewind" session featuring young Scottish storyteller and music teacher Alec Miller.

Alec lives and works in Aberdeen where, among other things, he leads ACE, a community organisation that offers children and young people a holistic experience of music, singing, storytelling, and outdoor education. Alec's a great champion of storytelling among young people as a way of helping them find their voice and share their experiences. Many of those he works with come from backgrounds where such opportunities are rare or beyond the reach of their parents' budgets. Along with his volunteers, Alec has succeeded in transforming the lives of children, young people and their communities through story and song and a love of the environment.

Listen to Alec share his own story and a tale called "The Luckless One" only on The Teller and the Tale, only on Blues and Roots Radio.

Begins Sunday May 3 at 12noon GMT (UK), Tuesday May 5 at 8pm GMT and Thursday May 7 at 4pm. Check www.bluesandrootsradio.co.uk for times in your part of the world.
