Join us for a programme of music and spoken word presented by the Scottish Clarinet Quartet and actor Crawford Logan (who recently portrayed Sir Walter Scott in Allan Massie’s The Ragged Lion), performed in the beautiful setting of the library at Abbotsford, Scott’s country house. Directly inspired by the writings of Sir Walter Scott and James Hogg, the concert will feature the first performance of Tom David Wilson’s Wringhim His Demons and the UK première of Francine Trester’s Many Miles Away, accompanied by works with their origins in Scottish traditional music from composers including Judith Weir, Master of the Queen’s Music. Drinks from 7pm, performance starts at 7.30pm.
The Scottish Clarinet Quartet is very grateful for the support of the Hope Scott Trust and James Sneddon which will enable this event to take place.
