Robert Tannahill (1774 – 1810) the Paisley born weaver, poet, flautist and songwriter, is one of Scotland’s most lyrical songsmiths, although much neglected in his lifetime. His recent resurgence in popularity has led to the discovery of a rich seam of poetry and song, the musical side of which will be explored today in this workshop, giving participants the opportunity to sing his lovely lyrics – both poignant or cheerful – in unison and harmony.
Wendy Weatherby is an experienced singer and ‘cellist, with vast performing and recording experience. She is the Scots Song tutor at the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music, in Plockton.
