Music and Verse from the Atlantic and beyond

Celebrating Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters, Red Note string players Jackie Shave (violin) and Robert Irvine (cello) blend their styles with Eliza Marshall on flutes and whistles and iconic Indian tabla player/composer Kuljit Bhamra to explore the theme of ‘Oceans and Journeys’. The musicians are joined by actor Crawford Logan in a concert integrating poetry and music of great power and beauty, performing specially written works by members of the ensemble and others.
