Far, Far From Ypres - The Concert

Description

This Concert production arose out of the Greentrax double CD 'Far, Far From Ypres - Songs, Poems and Music of World War 1' (CDTRAX1418) and has been presented in several venues across Scotland, including a sell-out return visit to Celtic Connections in the Glasgow Concert Hall. One critic wrote: 'A standing ovation raised the roof for several minutes after the show had finished. It was a stirring end to a night that left the entire audience moved and sombre, but strangely elated.' A series of concerts around Scotland, sponsored by WW100 Scotland, Poppy Scotland, Legion Scotland and Creative Scotland was arranged for 2018 and Greentrax Recordings produced this DVD from the first of these concerts.

The DVD should not be regarded as simply a duplication of the double CD content but is an independent production. 27 songs poems and music with a cast of 28.

  • A two hour DVD recorded at Victoria Halls, Selkirk, on Sunday 5th August, 2018.
  • Songs, poems and music of World War 1 - 27 tracks.

  • Cast includes Barbara Dickson MBE, Siobhan Miller, Mairi MacInnes, Iain Anderson, Dick Gaughan, Gary West, Ian McCalman, Stephen Quigg, Ian Bruce and many more. Overhead slide projection by Peter Heywood.
  • Devised, written and produced by Ian McCalman.
  • Narration by Iain Anderson of BBC Radio Scotland.
