Nick Hennessey came to storytelling whilst undertaking field research for a PhD in Cultural Geography. He became a professional singer, songwriter and storyteller with a particular interest in the relationship between landscape, communities and stories, and the traditional culture of northern Europe. In 2000 he won the World Championship in epic-singing performing the Kalevala, the Finnish national epic in Espoo, near Helsinki and regularly returns to perform Kalevala in English for Finnish audiences. Nick has performed at the Barbican, the Soho Theatre, at South Bank Centre and the Albert Hall and extensively at folk, storytelling, and literature festivals throughout the UK and internationally (Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Canada and two national tours of Japan). He has published three solo albums, the most recent of which, A Rare Hunger released on Harbourtown Records, received critical acclaim with airtime plays on BBC Radio 3s Late Junction and numerous stations in the US.
