Collections Conversations: Walter Scott and Song

Collections Conversations: Walter Scott and Song

This is a past event

Professor Alison Lumsden discusses Scott's association with song, as it is explored in a new online exhibition.

Join UoA Collections and Professor Alison Lumsden for this week's Collections Conversation. Alison will introduce us to the lesser-known Scott revealed in the new exhibition, Walter Scott and Song Retuning the Harp of the North, part of a Scotland-wide year long celebration of 250 years of Scott. A man who was fascinated by folklore, traditional songs and ballads, and whose poetry inspired popular music, Italian opera and theatrical productions for generations to come.
