From Sheena Wellington :
Lunchtime Recital: Wighton Heritage Centre at the Central Library
Tomorrow - Wednesday 6th May, 1.15pm admission free!
On Wednesday lunchtime, historical harp specialist Simon Chadwick will present a quirky and provocative concert of "hot political tunes from three hundred years ago". This elegant 18th century Scottish harp music addresses the pressing political issues of the early 1700s, with sweet sounds, melancholy jigs and startling anecdotes.
Simon will play the beautiful decorated replica of the medieval Scottish "Queen Mary" harp, in a free lunchtime concert in the atmospheric ambience of the Wighton Centre, upstairs in the Central Library. The concert begins at 1.15pm on Wednesday 6th May and lasts about half an hour.
Admission is free and all are welcome.
