Far, Far From Ypres Music

Far, Far From Ypres

Based on a Greentrax double album of WW1 songs, "Far, Far From Ypres" is an acclaimed production of WW1 songs, poems and stories, following the terrifying journey of a Scot to "the trenches" and back.

This production features many of the finest Scottish traditional singers including Barbara Dickson, Siobhan Miller and Dick Gaughan and has received standing ovations throughout its triumphant Scottish tour.

Press/review quotes:
"It was a beautifully crafted show and there should be some way of letting everyone in the world
experience it. Come back anytime" Donald Shaw Director of Celtic Connections. 
"Far, far from Ypres was a fitting memorial to the Scottish contribution in the First World War, and
without being overtly political, it powerfully reminds us of the horrors of war and the individuals
and communities touched by it. Thank you Celtic Connections for taking this project on board - the
sell-out audience showed their appreciation with a standing ovation". STV online
"A standing ovation raised the roof of the Queen’s Hall for several minutes after the show had
finished. It was a stirring end to a night honouring a terrible tragedy, one that left the entire
audience moved and sombre, but strangely elated" Broadway Baby
