A musical conversation

Meander: Songs from Source to Sea

Meander is an ambitious project led by folk musician Kirsty Law and supported by Connecting Threads. Over three weeks in May and June, Kirsty will be walking the length of the River Tweed, meeting with musicians and writers, sharing songs and stories as she develops a new song cycle. Along the way Kirsty will be running workshops and holding 'musical conversations' at indoor venues and on the riverbank - sharing her findings with the places and communities that inspired them.

Kirsty Law & Sam Gillespie: A Musical Conversation

Join folk musicians Kirsty Law and Sam Gillespie for a musical conversation inspired by a journey down the Tweed. Kirsty and Sam will be sharing songs and music with you and with each other, following a day of walking along the river together.

Join us from 7pm for a drink in the courtyard, before walking down the Quair Water to the Yew Tree Circle where the performance will be held. The performance will run from 7.30pm until 8.30pm, when we will walk back to the House before the sun goes down.

Refreshments will be available to purchase before the performance. Please bring cash or a card with you.

Toilets will be available by the bar area at the entrance, however there are no toilets next to the performance area.
