Sheena Wellington, singer - “The Earl’s Daughters”
Friends of Wighton stalwart Sheena Wellington explores the considerable and unique contribution made to Scots song by ladies of genteel birth.
Lady Grisell Baillie, Lady Anne Lindsay, Lady John Scott, Lady Nairne and others were aristocratic women who loved their country and the emotive power of its native music.
Some of songs will be very familiar though their origin might be a surprise.
Some of the songs deserve to be better known as do the stories of the women who wrote them.
