The Swan of Salen is a multimedia folk ballet created by The Willow Trio and production company Ballet Folk. The Swan of Salen Project is a multimedia adaptation of the heartbreaking tragedy of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and the parallel Gaelic legend, Eala Shàilein.

Featuring a unique blend of Tchaikovsky's iconic music and traditional melodies played live by The Willow Trio, enchanting footage of ballet dancers performing stunning choreography by Deborah Norris of Ballet Folk will be projected behind the musicians as they perform, transporting audiences to another time and place.

These performances will be the first tour of The Swan of Salen and as well as performing the work as a whole, we will also be celebrating the release of the album of the same name. Released on Friday 17th February, The Willow Trio's debut album forms the musical backdrop to the ballet and these albums will be for sale.

Venue: Ecclesmachan & Threemiletown Village Hall, Byburn, Ecclesmachan, Broxburn EH52 6NG
