A Flyting Of Screen And Sang

A one-off event pitching the voices of some of Scotland’s most celebrated traditional musicians into conversation with a series of short, silent films from the National Library of Scotland’s Moving Image Archive. A glimpse into Scottish folk history, from crofting townships on Eriskay to Ayrshire mining villages, from Dawn Cine’s charged address to 1950s Glasgow.

The soundtrack was performed live by Glasgow’s Arthur Johnstone and Brian Miller, and Radio 2’s Folk Musician of the Year, Rachel Newton.
