About Daniel Allison

I am a Scottish storyteller, musician and workshop leader based in East Lothian. I have travelled, lived and worked in African villages, Nepalese monasteries and the Amazon jungle. I now share the stories that I have found on my journeys with people of all ages and from all walks of life.

I am available to perform and host workshops at schools, festivals and events in Scotland and internationally.

Within this website you can find out about the storytelling, workshops and training I offer and find information on making a booking. You can visit my blog to see where I’ve been and what I’m working on, and sign up to my monthly podcast to hear stories, music, poetry and more.
