Readings by Harry Josephine Giles, Alison Miller, Duncan McLean, Robert Alan Jamieson and Gerda Stevenson


Forget selkies and St Magnus. This is a rare chance to hear the sound of contemporary Orkney, in the varied voices of three Orcadian writers: poet Harry Josephine Giles, novelist Alison Miller, and short story writer Duncan McLean.

All three are associated with the ground-breaking Abersee press, as is Shetlander Robert Alan Jamieson, who has given voice to the northern isles in novels, poems and plays for more than 30 years. Jamieson and McLean were the subject of portraits by Gunnie Moberg, as was actor and poet Gerda Stevenson, who also starred in Margaret Tait’s feature film Blue Black Permanent. Stevenson’s recent collection, Quines, includes a tribute to Tait, and a host of other notable Scottish women.

Tickets £7.00
