This is the title of a recent project which brought to life an almost forgotten archive of songs collected in the Glenkens area of Dumfries & Galloway by William Macmath in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Macmath contributed enormously to the famous Professor Child’s Ballad collection but is relatively unknown himself. Now, thanks to song researcher Ali Burns, we have a stage show and CD to celebrate him. Wendy will illustrate how she, and fellow musicians from Scotland’s South West, turned dry word into living song. Bring your harp or any other instrument and have a go at a couple of beauties!
