About Horse

There are times in life when you need to be careful: growing up gay in Lanark in the 70’s, when the reward is half a pack of fruit pastilles, when the lady on the train tells you about the doctor you should meet. These would be some of those times, but you’ll always be saved if you use your voice. Horse McDonald takes us on a journey from wearing two-tone velvet loons to being one of Scotland’s most celebrated singers, and through those times when she had to be... Careful.

Venue: The Studio

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Horse are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
