The evening begins with 45 minutes of Scottish music, the heart of which is a brand-new piece by Celtic harpist Ailie Robertson which explores some of the typical characters found in storytelling – be it hero, lover, villain or even trickster. Interspersed with her music you’ll hear pieces from other distinctive voices of Scottish music: James Macmillan, Anna Meredith and more.In the interval you’ll be able to enjoy a pop-up exhibition featuring a mix of art and craftworks created by local artists from across Scotland. Including paintings, tapestry, textiles, photography, poetry, ceramics and more – all inspired by stories and the area in which they were created. To round off the evening, rejoin Scottish Ensemble and local musicians as we let our hair down with an hour’s session of relaxed traditional music, a joyous end to a night of discovery.
