Harry Morris, storyteller...
"Listening to Harry talk is a bit like watching Billy Connolly do stand-up but without the swearing.
This is a man born for the role, to be an entertainer, and it isn't surprising to find that he
once performed in a
band. He is the epitome of the convivial man in the pub, an author of tall tales and modern folk stories,
utilising typically Glaswegian language and humour."
- Nicola Johnston, Strathclyde Uni.
