NATIONAL THEATRE OF SCOTLAND PRESENT
BY DUNCAN McLEAN
DIRECTED BY VICKY FEATHERSTONE
FEATURING THE LONE STAR SWING BAND
A celebration of the life of Thomas Fraser.
An evening of song and storytelling in the hands of Orcadian western swingers The Lone Star Swing Band, with novelist, playwright and musician Duncan McLean at the helm.
Thomas Fraser (1927 – 1978) was a fisherman and crofter from the remote island of Burra, Shetland, and one of Scotland’s most fascinating musical heroes. Obsessed with country music and the blues, Thomas mastered the styles of his idols from Jimmie Rodgers to Hank Williams and made their songs his own. An evening designed to set your toes tapping, your heart racing and your emotions running high.
Please note venue change from Claddagh Hall to Commercial Boat Club Woodquay
