Esme’s Adventure – sell out concert a grand success

Esme’s Adventure – a concert in memory of Esme Macintrye, held on 16 February 2014, was a huge success and a wonderful tribute to Esme. Tickets sold out and over £3,600 was raised for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The concert was packed full of wonderful music and new compositions inspired by Esme including:

Sunflower by Fiona Rutherford

Esme’s Flying by Patsy Seddon and Mary Macmaster

Esme’s Adventure by Jennifer Port

Esme’s Tune by Mairi Robertson

The Girl with the Purple Harp by Karen Marshalsay

One by Gwen Yorke

Esme’s Dream by Debbie Nash

Esme’s Bicycle Ride by Isobel Mieras and Na Clarsairean

The programme also included a moving interpretation of ‘Toker’ by Amy Moar – a tune she learned with Esme and some beautiful songs and guitar playing from Amy Duncan accompanied by Fiona Rutherford.

The Rev Dr Angus Morrison gave the most beautiful reading in Gaelic of the Sorley Maclean poem ‘Camhanaich’ which he read at Esme’s funeral service.

There are plans to compile a CD of songs performed at Esme’s Adventure Harp Concert. Watch this space!
