A Centenary Celebration of George Mackay Brown
Co-writers Barbara McLean and David Campbell begin with some memories of George Mackay Brown before taking us more deeply into his world. In a collage of recordings and readings, story, music and song, this affectionate portrait includes an exploration of the pain of his adolescence; the story of St Magnus; his celebration of society’s outcasts and of Orkney’s rich history - all seen through the prism of his poetry and prose.
With music by Wendy Weatherby.
A special opening weekend of events celebrating the Orcadian poet, author and storyteller, and Founding Patron of the Scottish Storytelling Centre, George Mackay Brown on the 100th anniversary of his birth.
