Tuesday 16th February. 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Tickets: £12.
We have joined forces with WemsFest and the Wickham Music Festival to bring you a wonderful, hour long evening, with Breabach.
The evening features Dùsgadh (see meaning below), as well as behind the scenes footage and unseen live performances from the band, plus a Q&A hosted by BBC Radio Scotland broadcaster and musician Anna Massie.
Dùsgadh (n. awakening) is an exciting new collaboration between Scottish Bafta winning animator Cat Bruce and internationally renowned, multi award-winning folk group, Breabach.
This unique and innovative project takes the form of an animated film with original score. Based on ‘The Sea Maiden’ a folkloric tale collected by John Francis Campbell, the film is available to view in Gaelic and English, narrated by renowned tradition bearer Margaret Bennet. It features a soundtrack comprising five new pieces of music, one from each of Breabach’s five members. It is a powerful and poignant piece of work conceived and delivered throughout a turbulent and challenging year for the arts; all music was written, recorded and produced individually, from home.
Tickets cost £12 and proceeds will be split between the artists, WemsFest, Southdowns Folk Festival and Wickham Festival.
Times are hugely challenging for artists, and the whole live music scene currently.
We are really pleased to be part of this project, so please do lend your support and buy your tickets. When you book you’ll get instructions on how to access the event. Your ticket will also enable you to watch the show a second time – up until 8th March.
