Oysters, Tears and Gold Moidores
A miscellany of pieces by local composer Janette Montague that draw from the influences of Scottish land and seascapes, poetry and nature performed by a vocal ensemble, accordion and violin.
The programme includes:

'Caller Oysters'; a setting of Robert Fergusson's poem.
'Clocks'; a clicking piece.
'Waves'; a reflection by the seaside
'John Anderson, my Jo, John'; a setting of the Scottish Folk song with added verses.
'Cargoes'; a setting of the beautiful poem by John Masefield.
