Tales of Otherness
“a magical experience in words and music”.
Tales of Otherness brings together a wonderful array of ballads,
songs and stories from Britain and other countries, to explore a
twilight zone of deception and masquerade, trickery and betrayal,
transformation and enchantment, where creatures and people are seldom
if ever what they seem! Witch-hares, wer-foxes, swan maidens,
dragon ladies, female pirates and
many more appear in a magical, sometimes scary, and frequently thought
provoking experience in words and music.
Tales of Otherness is devised, produced and performed by
Craig;Morgan;Robson. Moira Craig, Sarah Morgan and Carolyn Robson have
between them a wide
experience of performing which encompasses film, TV, radio, theatre,
festivals and concerts, Arts Centres and village halls. Their
singing has been described as “A mix made in Heaven” (Keith Kendrick).

TALES OF OTHERNESS
It isn’t hard to see why audiences are spellbound when Craig; Morgan;
Robson present ‘Tales of Otherness’.
Sherfield on Loddon Village Hall
Friday 31 March 2006
From the foot-tapping ‘Vampire Song’ to the poignant and
thought-provoking ‘Peppers and Tomatoes’, when you could have heard a
pin drop, the three performers enchant with their unaccompanied
harmonies throughout an evening of enjoyable traditional ballads, songs
and stories. Craig; Morgan; Robson are very much a team, taking the
spotlight alternately in ensemble pieces or charming us as polished solo
‘Tales of Otherness’ is simply impossible to categorise. It is an
evening full of affection, tenderness and delight. It transports us
away from our every-day lives through disguise, mystery, masquerade and
music. We suspend belief and are rewarded with sometimes comforting,
sometimes humorous songs and tales which gently draw us out of ourselves
and into a world of fantastic possibilities.
‘Tales of Otherness’ proves you don’t need flashing lights, gizmos and
gadgets to entertain; you just need great voices, good stories, and a
sprinkling of imagination! A great evening!
