Lunchtime Recital at the Wighton Heritage Centre

From Sheena Wellington of Friends of Wighton:

Wednesday 6th February at 1.15pm in the Wighton Heritage Centre (see right) at the Central Library 

Lunchtime Recital with Robyn Stapleton, singer. Admission free - donations welcome.

Specialising in Scots song, Robyn Stapleton is in her final year as a music student at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (formerly RSAMD) studying towards BA in Scottish Music.  

Born in Dumfries and raised in Stranraer, at just 23 years old Robyn has  performed for HRH Prince of Wales at Dumfries House;  the Globalscot Conference at Kelvingrove Art Gallery;   in London for the East India Club;    at Celtic Connections and for the Keepers of the Quaich - to name just a few. 

Having recently returned from Ireland after a year as an exchange student studying Irish song at the University of Limerick, Robyn is looking forward to sharing her repertoire of traditional Scots and Irish songs now that she's back in the UK.
