Dr Sally Garden, the former Historical Musician in Residence at the Wighton Heritage Centre returns with a fascinating illustrated talk:

Mine's a 'double tonic'! - native tradition and the making of Scotland's art music.

The story of how Dvorak, Sibelius, Grieg, and the composers of the 'national romantic', took interest in their native folk music is well known.    But what about Scotland's big story? 

Musician and writer Dr Sally Garden reveals the surprising and inspirational role of national tradition in the making of Scotland's art music.
