BRINGING TO LIFE THE MUSIC & SONG OF THE ELIZA ROSS MANUSCRIPT OF 1812

This day-long event in association with TradFest will provide a relaxed and interactive opportunity to explore the wide potential of a resource for Highlands and Islands music, The Elizabeth Ross Manuscript: Original Highland Airs Collected at Raasay in 1812, which has been made available recently in edited form. Copies of the edition will be available on the day. New and seasoned musicians alike, across a range of instruments, are warmly welcome!

The day will encourage the use of the edition by singers, instrumentalists, composers and researchers by means of a combination of introductory talks in the morning, giving its background and context, contents and editorial history (followed by a sandwich lunch) with afternoon workshops led by specialists.

A ceilidh presenting the outcomes of the workshops will take place in the early evening.

All parts of the day will take place in 50 George Square and lunch is included in the ticket price.

For further information, including the opportunity to alert organisers to any dietary requirements for lunch and supper, please contact Margaret Mackay at margaret.a.mackay@ed.ac.uk or Joshua Dickson at j.dickson@rcs.ac.uk.

The event is sponsored by MUSICA SCOTICA, which has published the edition of the Eliza Ross Music Manuscript, the ROYAL CONSERVATOIRE OF SCOTLAND and the SCHOOL OF SCOTTISH STUDIES ARCHIVES/CELTIC & SCOTTISH STUDIES, UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH.
