When is this event?
Writer Merryn Glover and musician Hamish Napier take us into new revelations of the Cairngorm mountains with Nan Shepherd as a muse and guide. Elemental, fierce and full of wonder, the Cairngorm mountains are the high and rocky heart of Scotland. For tonight?s artists, they are also home. In this original and intimate performance, readings from Glover?s The Hidden Fires: A Cairngorms Journey with Nan Shepherd are woven together with Napier?s locally-inspired music on piano, whistles and flutes to a backdrop of Cairngorms photographs, old and new. In a New Light is their latest collaboration with its full premiere at the Cairngorms Nature Festival. Through the inter-weaving of their work, the wild majesty and iridescence of the Cairngorms is revealed in a beautiful evocation of landscape, place and identity. Bring money along as books and CDs are available for purchase at the event and there will be plenty of time to talk with Hamish and Merryn over refreshments at the end.This event is part of the Cairngorms Nature Festival which runs from 12 – 21 May 2023. It’s a ten day festival with over 80 exciting events across the Cairngorms National Park celebrating the incredible landscapes and nature found here.
