The concert will explore a selection of Scottish music from the collections of Sydney Living Museums and other Australian libraries and includes items recently discovered during research for the forthcoming Songs of Home exhibition, launching in August at the Museum of Sydney. This concert is part of a collaborative project, ‘Performing a distant heritage: Scottish music in early Australian collections, its materials and its practices’ and brings together musicians, scholars, students, amateurs and heritage professionals to explore the wealth of music and dance that was brought to Australia from Scotland by families in the 19th century.
The sharing of musical and historical expertise between the Universities of Sydney and Glasgow, Sydney Living Museums and Melbourne’s Evergreen Ensemble will bring this material to life for new audiences in a captivating historic house setting.
Refreshments will be served on the night.
Warm attire recommended.
