Indulge in this wonderful, musical collaboration between acclaimed award-winning writer, Tom Pow, and top branch local musicians in The Galloway Agreement, a new string quartet. ‘Nine Nests’ is punctuated by separate, named musical pieces and music in The Village & The Road has been composed in response to place, movement and emotion.

The music is informed by a deep knowledge within the group of folk traditions across Europe, of Celtic playing and song and with awareness of the highland and lowland heritage of de-population. This is an especially pertinent location for the concert as Davington, Eskdalemuir has experienced extreme de-population over the past three generations but also, much of the music was composed here in the Schoolhouse during the winter of 2017.
