The project celebrates Galloway’s historic linguistic diversity. Accomplished and intriguing artists, talented and knowledgeable about their areas of tradition, were invited to contribute their creativity and their expertise.

A new arrangement of the Òran Bagraidh song was accomplished during the residency. Further new work was created and led by members of the group, combining different languages, traditions and mining the past so far back that they had no choice but for it to become creation again.

The resulting work is surprising, authentic, rooted in history yet fresh and personal in perspective. An entirely new take on ‘tradition’.
