A Cran of Songs: Memories of Scottish Fishing Music
Sat, October 29, 2016, 7:00 PM – 9:30 PM BST
Experience the Scottish Fisheries Museum as you've never seen - or heard - it before!
Explore a sound track trail of music from Scotland's fishing past threading through the museum's galleries. Afterwards, enjoy a short, fascinating talk by St Andrews student and Laidlaw research intern Meg Hyland on the songs sung by Scottish fisherfolk.
The evening will conclude with live, contemporary interpretations of traditional songs by some of the East Coast's leading musical lights, originally brought together under the sails of the legendary Fence Records. These include James Yorkston, Lomond Campbell, Joanna Foster and local folk musician and Boat's Club member Bernie McConnell.
Admission is FREE with a suggested donation of £6. Booking is essential to reserve a space at the concert performance. For further enquiries please contact the museum on 01333 310628 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is part of the Connecting Scotland’s Sounds project which champions the preservation and sharing of Scotland’s audio heritage with support from the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.
