Wringhim His Demons

August 27, 2015 in by mwhiteside


Event Details


The players of the Scottish Clarinet Quartet are joined by actor Crawford Logan to present an evening centred on the world of Scottish Romanticism, which produced Burns, Scott and Hogg, and where rural beliefs in the supernatural were increasingly challenged by a growing urban culture. James Hogg was split between his sheep-farming origins and life in literary Edinburgh: music and text pick up on his friendship and rivalry with Sir Walter Scott and explore the debt that Scotland’s cultural identity owes to its folklore. With original works by composers Tom David Wilson, Judith Weir, Francine Trester, Becky Milne and Richard Ingham. www.scq.org.uk
