The Launch of 'Walter Scott and Song': Celebrating Scott 250

The Launch of 'Walter Scott and Song': Celebrating Scott 250
-

Join us for a virtual celebration of the 250th anniversary of Walter Scott’s birth, and the opening of the University’s new online exhibition, Walter Scott and Song: Retuning the Harp of the North, on Tuesday 17 August from 6pm (BST).

With an introduction by Professor Ali Lumsden, Exhibition Curator and Director of the Walter Scott Research Centre, this online event will introduce you to a lesser-known Scott – one who was fascinated by folklore, traditional songs and ballads, and whose poetry inspired popular music, Italian opera and theatrical productions for generations to come.

Tune in to listen to performances of Scott-inspired songs, and to delve, virtually, into the Scott book and archive collections held by the University of Aberdeen.

We can't wait to see you there so please book your spot below to confirm your place. We will share joining information for the event a few days beforehand with those registered.

Please also note that this session will be recorded and shared online.
