A MÒD fringe event
Join us for a night of music inspired by the Clyde. Mary Ann Kennedy and special guests, including long-time musical friends and young people from the area, take us on a unique journey marking the changing face of one of Scotland’s most famous rivers.
From the cotton and tombacco trades to the legendary shipyards and modern-day businesses on her banks and shores, the Clyde’s development didn’t come without its impact on the natural environment.
Scotland’s land, sea and shores are ever-changing, both naturally and in response to the way we use them. Little by little, the river is regenerating – the Clyde is recovering. Salmon, redshank, basking shark and porpoise are all an indication of this reawakening. Traditional song and music, native Gaelic from the area, technology and original words and music combine in this special night to celebrate the Clyde’s multi-faceted environment. This event is sponsored by Scottish National Heritage
The Clyde is a living, lively place for people and nature. Let’s celebrate her new lease of life!
