Plaid Song – Scotland’s Songstress — The Life, Songs & Times of Lady Nairne (1766-1845),

Date(s) - 25/11/2018
7:30 pm

Plaidsong and trees

Perth-based duo Plaid Song, Syd House and Nicola Cowmeadow  will perform the songs of Caroline Oliphant, better known as Lady Nairne, (1766 – 1845) and tell the story of her remarkable life.

Lady Nairne was a Jacobite and a contemporary of Robert Burns. She wrote many of Scotlands best known songs including Charlie is My Darling; The Rowan Tree; Will Ye No’ Come Back Again; Caller Herrin’; and The Hundred Pipers.   

They performed at Castle Menzies in August – here are the comments from one member of that audience:

” Very impressed. My worry was it would be classical vibrato renditions of old songs but it wasn’t. They linked their songs with a PowerPoint history talk about the period of history that Lady Nairne lived through. Really good speakers. Old Scottish music is maybe not the liveliest, but put in context with the history it makes for a good night”.

Tickets £10 on the door (£5 kids) 

BYOB, tea coffe and soft drinks will be available
