Event Information Buy Tickets

After many years working with computers, Stuart McKenzie volunteered to help residents of old peoples homes in Edinburgh to use the Internet. In Silverlea Care Home he met Trevor Morrison who asked 'Can these things record music?'

Stuart went on to record Trevor playing tunes from St Kilda taught to him as a child, saving them from extinction. The music became a best selling classical album featuring those recordings along with new compositions inspired by the original tunes, performed by the Scottish Festival Orchestra conducted by Sir James Macmillan.

Come along and hear the incredible story of how these haunting tunes were rescued, and hear some of the original recordings!
