AIDAN O’ROURKE, KIT DOWNES & JAMES ROBERTSON
Words, music, the disarming drama of stripped-back storytelling. One of Scotland’s most celebrated authors, James Robertson wrote a story every day for a year, each exactly 365 words. Leading musician Aidan O’Rourke, fiddler of folk supergroup Lau, applied the same discipline to composition: a tune a day in response to Robertson’s stories.
Now, alongside pianist and harmonium player Kit Downes, a heavyweight of the European jazz scene, they have created a piece weaving together their words and music referencing old myths, folk legends, everyday lives, hard truths, tender tales, and the alchemic power of storytelling.
This event is a mix of seating and standing.
