Away Being at The Thrive Archive
Posted on December 13, 2014
Images are starting to arrive for Away Being, a pop up exhibition I am curating to celebrate a new music commission by The Thrive Archive. With help from Enterprise Music Scotland, Trad Awards nominee Mike Vass has composed a new concerto inspired by photographs taken by John Maher and Ian Paterson of abandoned croft houses on Lewis and Harris. The event on January 4th 2015 at Gallery 1 in St Margaret’s House will be a community gatherin and the music will be performed by the talented Edinburgh Youth Gathering Big Band. From 2pm – 4pm there will be lots to see and do, much cake and a big tea urn or two. This image by John Maher has travelled all the way from the Isle of Harris for the event.
