Lisburn City Library Yarnspinners Special Guest Colin Urwin.
Colin Urwin, singer, songwriter and storyteller hails from the Glens of Antrim in the North of Ireland. Influenced mainly by traditional Irish and Scottish music, he has been playing and singing folk songs for over forty years. His self-penned songs on everything from the environment to reflections on his upbringing in Northern Ireland have a universal appeal. His stories, composed and told in a traditional style, and always set in the Glens of Antrim, are ever popular with audiences. His storytelling repertoire also includes many traditional Irish and Scottish folk tales.
