Stories at the edge
Friday 20th January
An evening to remember with two of the most talented wordsmiths on the Scottish scene: Bob Pegg, musician, actor, playwright and storyteller and Ian Stephen storyteller, artist, playwright and writer of fiction and non-fiction.
Bob’s storytelling is punctuated with music and song, and while his stories are embedded in the culture of the north, his music comes from anything that will produce a sound – stones, shells, a jaw harp, a concertina, ocarinas, or even a Dark Ages lyre.
Ian’s stories are likely to concern the sea. A former coastguard, he is steeped in maritime tradition. His last novel, A Book Of Death And Fish (Saraband, 2014) was a book of the year choice in The Guardian. In Waypoints, his first work of non-fiction, he offers a history of his personal love-affairs – all of them with boats.
There is, he says, a useful comparison between navigation and storytelling.

Friday 10th February:
Ewan Macpherson and friends
A few words from Ewan:
"I am not from a family of tradition bearers, but my forebears hail from all over the British Isles and music is in my bones. I have a genuine love for it, along with a mongrel's freedom which allows me to jump headlong into new cultures and get involved, learning many of the nuances in traditional styles from the generous musicians I have met.
FETCH is the culmination of all those experiences, with a few good friends from along the way, each one of them a respected musician in their own right. This is also a way to say thanks and perhaps a chance to give something back. In these uncertain times it feels good to be part of such a vibrant culture so full of bright energy.
This has been a very hands-on project, I wrote 95% of the music on this album, produced and recorded in Scotland and Norway, designed the cover art and booked the tour.”
Friday 10th March:
"Kaela’s voice held the audience with its sublime quality. Accompanied by musicians who demonstrated superb acoustic dexterity, this allowed the singer to demonstrate a rare emotional depth. To say it set the tone and quality for the whole weekend would not understate the impact of the performance. The audience left the night closer in spirit to the sky than earth with a thirst for more" – Kevin Frediani, The Scottish Adventure Travel Film Festival @ Inverewe
