‘Seeker Reaper’ by Ken­neth Thomson

The Oban Times - - Letters -

THE poster I at­tach to the ar­ti­cle this week is for ‘Seeker Reaper’, Ken­neth Thomson’s mu­si­cal set­ting of the Kin­tyre Scots po­etry of Ge­orge Camp­bell Hay.

As I wrote last week, I am ex­cited to per­form this won­der­ful mu­sic along­side pi­anist Andrew Dun­lop from Con­nel and the choir of the Glas­gow Gaelic Mu­si­cal As­so­ci­a­tion. Camp­bell Hay’s po­etry is su­perb (full of nos­tal­gic praise for his boat as she sails from Kin­tyre round the west of Scot­land and to Ire­land) and Ken­neth Thomson’s mu­si­cal in­ter­pre­ta­tion of his words is per­fect.

It is well worth com­ing along to hear the mu­sic.
