Dundee Connection? You need a Friends of Wighton CD!

We have news of a new CD!
The Friends of Wighton” limited edition CD is now available! Only 100 copies, each numbered and signed, have been made and there will be no reissues.
Created to raise funds for conservation work on the eclectic music book collection of the late Sir Jimmy Shand, the CD reflects the maestro’s wide musical interests.
Scottish music, song and poetry, mainly rarities from the Wighton Collection, was specially recorded in the Wighton Heritage Centre where Ronald Stevenson’s 'Sonata For Harpsichord & Piano', 2nd Movement’ was played on the beautiful Wighton harpsichord by Mark Spalding. Other artists featured include Simon Chadwick, Morag Anne Elder, Katie Grieve, Heelster Gowdie, Ellie MacDonald, Gavin Marwick, Bob Turner, Sheena Wellington, the Wighton Singers and Fiona Wilson.

The hour-long CD also has tracks generously donated by Phil Cunningham, Karine Polwart, Barbara Dymock and Chris Marra, Frieda Morrison and Helen Forbes with Fon A Bhord.

Friends of Wighton gratefully acknowledge the support of Leisure and Culture Dundee, TASGADH, Dundee Festival Trust, MMG Archbold, HERITAGE LOTTERY FUND
