Latest event from Friends of Wighton

From Sheena Wellington :

Cappuccino Concert with Fraya Thomsen, harp
Wighton Heritage Centre, Central Library - this Saturday - 16th March - 11am (doors open at 10.30am)

Fraya Thomsen is heralded as a "leading female Scottish harpist and composer with the cosmic touch... free and wild..." - City Life Dundee

Taking influences from songwriters such as Ani DiFranco and Billy Bragg and combining it with the Scottish sensibilities that she learnt in her native Highlands of Scotland, Fraya has worked as a musician in a wide diversity of settings from international harp and roots festivals with The Duplets, to musician in residence with Feis Rois and award winning film/dance/art composer. 

This tour sees her striding forth in a solo capacity and features music from her 2017 Celtic Connections composition 'Community and Stardust' described as  "a musical and rhetorical triumph, a coherent argument beautifully structured” - David Francis, TRACS, and "...incredibly musical and incredibly thoughtful" - Phil Cunningham.

Doors open 10.30am, tickets are £5 and tea/coffee available for a small donation.
