Award-winning early music group Ensemble Hesperi present a taste of 18th-century Scotland through this unique collaboration. Inspired by the haunting traditional melodies and infectious dance rhythms around them, Scottish composers created a new ‘fusion’ of folk and high baroque fashion to save Scottish musical culture from extinction!

This timeless music will be brought to life with special choreography by Highland dancer, Kathleen Gilbert.
