Diplomatic Notes - the British Islands. The Island Tapes

22 November at 22:00, Viru Centre, Tallinn

From the ancient Shetland Islands off the northern tip of Scotland, four musicians crackling with energy come to Tallinn, bringing with them the joyous and achingly sad strains of the centuries-old Celtic folk music tradition. The sounds are recognizably the Scottish folk music greatly beloved among Estonians, yet life on the islands, long isolated from the rest of the world, have impressed the tunes with a stamp all its own.
The specially modified atrium of the Viru Keskus shopping centre in downtown Tallinn will be ideal for spicing up the evening and emphasizing the contrast from the ordinary. Otherwise known as a shrine to 21st century consumerism, on this night Viru Keskus will be devoted to jealously guarded ancient traditions and customs and the mysterious sounds of a forgotten era.

Adding a visual aspect, a documentary silent film from the 1920s depicting everyday life on the Shetlands will be shown on a special screen.

Island Tapes:

DAVID ALLISON guitar, artistic director
IAN MELROSE guitar, dobro and large tin whistle

The cafés at Viru Keskus will remain open. Come and enjoy Scottish traditional music composed specially for the occasion, good film and the venue’s special ambience.
Bring your friends.

Tickets 120/80 EEK from Piletilevi and Piletimaailm outlets
