About St Andrews Day: Poetry and Music

St Giles' Cathedral presents an evening of music and spoken word this St Andrew's Day.

We will be joined by Scandinavian-Scottish genre-spanning duo Marit and Rona, as well as award-winning local singers from Lothian Gaelic Choir.

Spoken word poet and writer Catherine Wilson Garry will also be performing their work.

Writer and artist Andrew Redmond Barr will give a short introduction to his brand new Atlas of Scotland, telling Scotland's story through hand-drawn maps and illustrations.

Copies of the Atlas will be available to purchase on the night.

This evening will celebrate traditional Gaelic and Scottish culture and the new ways in which the Scottish arts are being interpreted.
