There are Fairies in the Gutter is a collection of real life stories about the sort of unsung heroes and beautifully flawed eccentrics one might find bumbling around the grit and grime of urban decay. It quickly put Ursula on the map as a world class teller of comedic personal tales & stormed Festival at the Edge in 2012, Cape Clear International Storytelling Festival in 2013 and more recently in 2018, Alden Biesen International Storytelling Festival.
Each tale is peculiarly bright in essence; moving, poignant and in places hilarious! They invite listeners of all ages to recall their own childhood “furries” and serve to remind that these dear folk can always be accessed through imagination and memory… The collection, which features Ursula’s own songs as well as her stories, is now available on CD.

I have been going to Festival at the Edge for a good few years now and I can honestly say that it was the first time I have seen a standing ovation. You truly deserved it. I came away feeling all blessed.
