    On the Water – The Galloway Agreement (Wendy Stewart)

    June 10 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

    £4 – £80

    The Galloway Agreement’s string quintet will perform from the shores of Loch Ken at the Galloway Activity Centre. Enjoy this show on the water – tickets include hire of a kayak, motor boat, paddleboard or canoe. Floating room only!

    The Galloway Agreement is a collaboration featuring four of D&G’s best known traditional musicians; Wendy Stewart (clarsach, vocals), Ruth Morris(alto and tenor nyckelharpa), Gavin Marwick (fiddle) and Stuart Macpherson(double bass). This event will feature a new line up which brings cellist Beth Porter into the group.

    These world class musicians are all based in Dumfries and Galloway, and originally came together as invited artists to record on Wendy’s album, ‘Folds in the field’. They enjoyed playing together so much that they decided to form this quartet, with a quite different instrumental line-up and choice of material from a more usual string quartet. Their current repertoire is a mixture of original compositions and favourite tunes and songs from Scotland and other European traditions. They make a sublime sound with this lovely combination of instruments.

    Booking is essential and we have a range of rentals available to accompany your tickets.

    This event was made possible through the Loch Ken Trust with support from Galloway Glens Landscape Partnership and Creative Scotland.
