About

Join us for a lively and inclusive concert that is open to all and particularly suitable for those with dementia and their families, supporters and carers. Folk duo Hannah Rarity and Luc McNally, comprising former BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2018 and finalist, draw inspiration from the exhibition Scotland’s Photograph Album | The MacKinnon Collection, performing traditional Scottish songs that capture and reflect Scotland’s work and industries; from the North East fishing industry, to coal mining and thread mills.
