Songs From The Last Page

A performance from acclaimed composer/songwriter Gareth Williams that lyrically transform iconic final pages from Scottish fiction into brand-new ‘literary chamber pop’ songs. From the melancholy mastermind of Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, to Kirsty Campbell’s joyful farewell in Ely Percy’s Duck Feet, the performance celebrates a diverse range of storytellers from across Scotland. This spellbinding collection for voice, piano and strings captures the moment a reader finishes the last lines of a book and holds it for just a few… more… minutes.
