The Fiddle at Sea: Exploring the Musical Traditions of Scottish Sailors

This one hour illustrated talk is an audio-visual exploration of the music which emerged as a result of the Scottish whaling and fishing industries and the Hudson’s Bay Company since the seventeenth century. The talk will be accompanied by a host of archive recordings and live renditions of instrumental music and songs from these times along with photography, video recordings and stories. ‘The fiddle Fiddle at Sea’ was a sell-out performance at Nairn Book and Arts Festival in 2013 and Mayfest 2015. It is not just a talk, but combines live and recorded music, photography, videos
