Freeland Barbour and Gerda Stevenson

The White Rose of Gask - The life and songs of Carolina Oliphant, Lady Nairne

We are finishing Winter Words 2020 with a very special musical event. It is nearly 175 years since the death of one of Perthshire and Scotland’s best-loved songwriters, Carolina Oliphant, who wrote over 100 songs in her lifetime, which rival Burns’ in popularity – such as The Rowan Tree, Will Ye No Come Back Again, and Charlie is my Darling. And yet, due mainly to her own modesty and wish for anonymity, the details of her life are not well-known.

Freeland Barbour, celebrated Scottish folk musician, composer and producer, and Gerda Stevenson, actress, singer-songwriter, poet, want to right that wrong with an evening of songs and stories from Lady Nairne’s life.
