A special show entitled Come Away In will air on Monday 18th January. Inspired by Karine Polwart’s song of the same name that celebrates Scottish hospitality and is partly inspired by The Wren’s Nest by Robert Burns, this song circle show will include performances from some of the best vocalist on the Scottish music scene – Karine Polwart, Eddi Reader, Rab Noakes, Siobhan Miller & Finlay Napier.
This performance will be available to watch for one week after the live date to accommodate different time zones.
This performance is included in the Celtic Connections 2021 festival pass, so you will not need to purchase this event if you have already purchased a pass.
Beautiful vocals and sentiment.
This piece of music has been composed with the express purpose of inviting choirs, street bands and community groups to learn and perform it, and join an exciting, collective musical response to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) which will be held in Glasgow in November 2021.
Want to get involved? Express interest & sign up for more info at http://oimusica.co.uk/cop26/ We extend the invite far and wide, to any music collective interested in joining the global call for swift action on climate justice and a shift to an economic model that values collective wellbeing above relentless economic growth.
This piece is a co-creation between Karine Polwart, Oi Musica & The Soundhouse Choir Music –
