Event Details


Music for the Book of Deer
Inspired by the extraordinary tenth century Aberdeenshire portable gospel book, The Book of Deer (one of Scotland’s most important manuscripts), Richard Ingham leads an evening of plainsong, reels and electronic
soundscapes: a sonic rollercoaster, with bells.
The twelve part suite creates musical images of the book itself, the early monastery in Deer, and the local working community.
Featuring Strangeness and Charm with Richard Ingham (reeds), Maarten Verbraeken (trumpet), Fraser Burke (keyboard), Kenny Irons (bass), Andy James (percussion).

Tickets: £10, £8, £5
