Announcement: Due to the recent developments related to the Covid-19 (coronavirus) and much to our disappointment, we have decided to cancel the upcoming Oceans Tour. This decision is in the interest of public health, thinking of the safety and our responsibility towards our musicians, employees and audiences.
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.
The ensemble will tour the Highlands and Islands in Scotland, interleaving poetry from local and international poets celebrating and exploring the passions of the Oceans.
The programme will include:
‘The Fable of the Mermaid and the Drunks’ (Neruda)
‘Machair to Myrrh’
‘Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner’
‘Lord Franklin’s Lament’
‘Billy Bhangra’s voyage’ (drowning and reincarnation)
