Mr McFall’s Chamber Remembered/Imagined

with award-winning Gaelic singer Maeve Mackinnon, celebrated author and actor Angus Peter Campbell and Creative Producer Amble Skuse

Three new works are interwoven with beautiful traditional repertoire and poetry, creating a performance that captures the riches of our

cultural history through music and words with live instrumental, vocal and electronic sound.

Scottish traditional musicians and composers teamed up with writers to create new works of music and words inspired by the archive at The School of Scottish Studies, housed in the University of Edinburgh. The archive is a treasure trove of recordings of songs, music, tales, verse, customs, beliefs and oral history.

“Old tunes, maybe, but magically fresh takes on them” The Scotsman****
