Inspired by the Music Library’s collections of Scottish music we’ve put together a programme to get you singing and tapping your feet to the music.
Join one of our singing for all sessions led by community musician, song leader, singer, and camper van traveller Ellie Logan on Saturdays 11th and 25th 10.30am-12noon singing Scottish traditional songs. These fun sessions don’t require an ability to read music or any previous experience, just a willingness to sing up and enjoy!
Later on in the month Live Music Now Scotland is teaming up with Edinburgh City Libraries Music Library for a concert of Scottish music, new and old, performed by the Spencer-Strachan Duo taking place Thursday 23rd February 7-8pm.
Musicians Rachel Spencer (violin) and Duncan Strachan (cello) perform a selection of traditional music from Scottish composers, inspired by music held in the Central Library’s collections, as well as one of Duncan Strachan’s own compositions, Lamentoso, based on Niel Gow’s haunting Lament for the Death of his Second Wife, and Dance Suite for Two, a contemporary piece by Eddie McGuire commissioned by Live Music Now Scotland and featured on the charity’s 30th Anniversary compilation album, `Luminate’.
