About the show:
https://vimeo.com/263149005
This beautiful, resonating new work devised by stunning folk maestros Jenny Sturgeon and Inge Thomson, explores the ecology and folklore of birds in a visceral and evocative audio-visual feast. Drawing on the extensive field recordings of birdsong expert Magnus Robb, Sturgeon’s background as a biologist, and Thomson’s home turf of Fair Isle, Northern Flyway combines deeply felt lyrical material with deeply skilful vocal and instrumental mimesis against a visual skyscape of flocks, skeins and murmurations. Featuring singer/multi-instrumentalist Sarah Hayes (Admiral Fallow) and the phenomenal vocal sculptor Jason Singh, this is the ultimate tribute to the rhythms and myths of humanity’s winged companion.
