Northern Flyway is a newly created performance by Inge Thomson and recently arrived Shetland resident Jenny Sturgeon, exploring the ecology, folklore, symbolism and mythology of birds and birdsong.
Drawing on such sources as the extensive field-recordings of musician/composer and birdsong expert Magnus Robb, the duo have worked with singer/multi-instrumentalist Sarah Hayes (Admiral Fallow) and the renowned vocal sculptor Jason Singh to create this brand-new piece.
Jenny’s background as a biologist and Inge’s home island of Fair Isle, have contributed to an evocative piece, combining vocal and instrumental composition with sonic experimentation and lush visuals.
Northern Flyway will also be performed at the Tron Theatre as part of Celtic Connections 2018.
Suitable for age 10+
