Legendary Deeside is a live music and storytelling performance exploring historic events, myths and legends from this unique corner of the Grampians.
Legendary Deeside is a new commission from St Margaret’s Braemar, exploring landscape, love and legends: tales from the upper Deeside area.
A collaboration in music and storytelling, produced and directed by John Bett, Legendary Deeside features original music from Paul Anderson and stories retold by Northeast Makar Sheena Blackhall and actor Hamish Somers.
This new work is inspired by this unique corner of the Grampians which has borne witness to major historical events, hosting kings, queens, Jacobite rebels and mysterious murders – spawning countless ghost stories and local legends. Little wonder it was Braemar that inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to create one of the most fiendish villains in literature in the form of Long John Silver.
The performers will weave together spoken word and music, immersing the audience in this world of local lore and legend.
