10 September 2021kist o dreams marks 20 years
20 years of songs!
The kist o dreams project celebrates its 20th birthday this year.
I am delighted to be able to mark the occasion with a special event featuring Bill Taylor who played harp on the original recordings, and harpist Grace Stewart-Skinner, whose infant photo graces the front cover of the album!
Join us on Friday 1st October, 2021 in the Muir Hub, Muir of Ord for a morning workshop and evening concert.
The morning workshop is an interactive event, suitable for adults bringing a young child with them. We will be sharing action songs and dandling songs and maybe even a couple of singing games.
The evening concert will open with Grace Stewart-Skinner on harp and then move to live performance of all the songs from the kist o dreams album, with a couple of extra wee gems.
