Phil Cunningham, Karen Matheson and Eddi Reader will perform Wednesday, January 19th at 7:30pm at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Main Auditorium.

As a suitably grand finale to ScottsLand celebrating the the 200th anniversary of Sir Walter Scott’s The Lady of the Lake – whose publication marked the pinnacle of his popularity as a poet, and first established the Trossachs region as a top destination for tourists – this program of music, song and spoken word includes the premiere of a specially-commissioned new work by accordionist Phil Cunningham.

Creatively revisiting the same inspirational landscapes, together with their colorfully turbulent history, that so seminally fired Scott’s imagination, the piece will feature the peerless voices of Karen Matheson and Eddi Reader, among other special guests.
