Peaks Island Storyteller Bill Hinderer: Tales of the Scottish Clans!

FREE; $10.00 suggested donation


Seanachie Nights welcomes Peaks Island storyteller Bill Hinderer.

Bust out your tartans! Bill and his kilt (depending on the wind chill factor) will tell tales of the Scottish Clans. The old bold crew! Tales of battles, romance, betrayals, and revenge! Host Lynne Cullen will join in with traditional Scottish music on the concertina.


Bill is a father, husband, professional cook, veteran, and storyteller who was raised in a family full of tales. Bill's stories take the listener from the coast of Maine to the battlefields of Vietnam and back. His stories are filled with joy and sorrow, laughter and tears, with a few surprises along the way.


If you would like to contact Bill to arrange a performance please call him at 207-766-2636.

Teig O'Kane and the Corpse


On March 16, 2019, Kurt Kish and I told six Irish folktales-with-music at the Raymond Village Community Church. My storytelling colleague Cheryl Andre was in the audience. Sherry is an artist with a unique and charming style. She made this delightful sketch of Kurt and me during the show, and I wanted to share it with you.
