Twine it Weel with Fiona J Mackenzie and Christine Kydd
Thursday, February 1st, 2018
8:00 PM
Jointly devised and performed by Christine Kydd and Fiona J Mackenzie, “Twine it weel…” explores the common ground of women’s experience in Scots and Gaelic song. From lullabies to work-songs, all the material comes from the archive at Canna House, former home of seminal folklorists John Lorne Campbell and Margaret Fay Shaw. Interweaving songs and stories with Campbell’s original sound recordings, the show also features previously unseen photographs and film footage from the 1930s and 40s, with Kydd and Mackenzie accompanied by Gillian Frame, Katie Mackenzie and Yvonne Lyon.
