Common Threads Linking Plainsong, Scottish Song & Fiddle Music, and ... Legal Deposit???

October 2015  

On Monday 12th October at 6 pm, Karen has been invited to give one of the regular Exchange Talks here at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.  

Admission is free, but you need to get a ticket from the box office.

Here's a teaser - see if you can work out what the common thread is!

 Karen’s Masters was about mediaeval plainsong; her PhD explored 18th and 19th century Scottish song collecting, and her part-time postdoctoral AHRC research investigated Scottish fiddle-tune accompaniments.  Next, she’ll be examining the University of St Andrews’ historic, but little-known Copyright Music collection. 

In her Exchange Talk, she will reveal the common thread which has interlaced all her research activities.
