This delicious programme promises an evening of unexpected delights, rare fancies and not a few moments of aching passion. We travel through 17th-18th C Scotland meeting such larger-than-life characters as soldier and viol player Tobias Hume, Christoff Shetky - a German in Edinburgh - and James Oswald, composer of The Flowers of Edinburgh who worked for mad King George. An intriguing and highly entertaining evening!
