About Morag You’re A Long Time Deid
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Sam finds a series of cryptic love letters made from lyrics of Scottish ballads inside her grandmother Morag’s old piano. The playful correspondence raises questions about Morag’s possible queerness and the silence surrounding her suicide. As Sam delves deeply into the ballads, she comes face to with oppressive dynamics within the musical tradition and begins to recreate her family’s songs.
This Scottish-Canadian collaboration between Claire Love Wilson and Peter Lorenz uses live looped soundscapes to unsettle tradition, contemplating note-by-note what to carry forward and what must be left behind.
Featuring performers: Claire Love Wilson, Alasdair Roberts, Rob Thomson and Rory Comerford. With a Q&A discussion post-event.
This performance is followed by an associated Song-walking workshop on Wed 6 Nov.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Morag You’re A Long Time Deid are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
