In Silver Darlings, celebrated writer Alexander McCall Smith has joined forces with innovative Scottish composer James Ross, to write a song cycle about Scotland and the sea.

The mood and subject of the lyrics are varied, ranging from exploration to fishing, ship building to naval engagements and beyond. All serve to illustrate the wealth of Scotland’s maritime story. Influenced by Scottish traditional music, James Ross’ new composition conveys a sense of just how the sea has made its mark on the people of Scotland. A lively and moving premiere by a group of Scotland’s finest singers and musicians including Michelle Burke, James Graham and Kathleen MacInnes.
