Tickets for thi performance, the first by a band from Scotland to embark upon a virtual tour in 2021 are available from Monday 18 January. Dùsgadh (n. awakening) is an exciting new collaboration between internationally renowned, multi award winning folk group, Breabach and Scottish BAFTA winning animator Cat Bruce.
It is based on ‘The Sea Maiden’ a folkloric tale collected by John Francis Campbell and is available to view in Gaelic and English, narrated by Margaret Bennet. The soundtrack is five new pieces of music, one from each member of Breabach.
It is a powerful and poignant piece of work conceived and delivered throughout a turbulent and challenging year for the arts; all music was written, recorded and produced individually, from home.
The film is accompanied by a virtual tour across the UK this February offering audiences the opportunity not only to support the artists, but also some of the band’s favourite venues including The Eastgate. It features behind the scenes footage and unseen live performances as well as a Q & A hosted by BBC Radio Scotland broadcaster and musician Anna Massie. The band will release a limited edition CD of the soundtrack and a limited run of art prints to accompany the tour.
