Immense skill and breathless conviction
    ...There's no faulting Reid's command of her craft
    The Times

    Rachel keeps
    oral tradition dust-free and fresh-faced,

    bridging between storytelling and spoken word

    from rock festivals to theatres, and campfires to concert halls.

  • Immense skill and breathless conviction...There's no faulting Reid's command of her craft.

    A compelling teller of stories. She has a warm, engaging voice, a voice that draws the audience in, and an open, inviting style of performance...An air of the bittersweet permeates and old stories sound fresh in her mouth. Her delivery is polished, with not a word out of place

    Reid’s approach is so personal, idiosyncratic and unpredictable... It’s much more like Peter Shaffer reimagining Mozart – an artistic life retold, as the vehicle for another artist’s ideas and preoccupations. It’s marvellous.

    Recent years have witnessed a renaissance of spoken word. Rachel Rose Reid is at the forefront of this resurgence...a lesson in the power of a good story creatively told...astonishing.

    Queen of the New Wave of Storytellers. 

    Rachel Rose Reid is polished and compelling....definitely one to watch

  • Silence Tour Dates 2018




    In the whole World, only one manuscript unfolds the Roman de Silence, inscribed in 13th century Cornwall & discovered at Wollaton Manor, Nottinghamshire in 1911 in a box marked 'Old Papers, No Value'.

    It was too hot to handle. Suffrage protests were at their explosive height, & this tale suggested that England depended on a quest for female freedom.

    So the legend was silenced once more.

    But the story was made to be told.

    Now is the time to tell it.
