The Monday Night Thing presents
To coincide with the first Soutar Festival Of Words, In A Sma Room celebrates the poems of William Soutar through original music written by Debra Salem, Kevin Mackenzie and Paul Harrison. These settings reflect the wide musical backgrounds of the composers with elements of jazz, folk and classical music sitting side-by-side with the English and Scots lyrics. Originally commissioned in 2012 by the Friends of William Soutar, these songs formed part of a touring music and theatre piece. This evening will include some hitherto unheard songs, all of which will be featured on a forthcoming album. The composers are joined by Perth fiddler, Pasty Reid who was part of the original ensemble, plus guests.
