Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet!
The theme of Cairn Chorus' Spring programme comes from the final line of Gerald Manley Hopkins poem 'Inversnaid' which captures the essence of the wild and rugged landscape of Dumfries and Galloway. The songs depict nature's success stories such as the Red Kite, which has made a dramatic comeback to the area, while other creatures like honey bees have been in decline. The songs are woven together with poetry and prose ranging from Wendell Berry to Emily Dickinson.
We are delighted to be joined by Galloway Agreement, combining the amazing talents of Wendy Stewart (harp), Gavin Marwick (fiddle), Ruth Morris (fiddle and Nyckelharpa) and Stuart Macpherson (bass). They will play a selection of their own compositions as well as accompanying the choir.
