Lady Nairne: Scotland's Forgotten Songstress

 at The Caledonian Club

PlaidSong, a musical duo based in Perthshire, will tell the story of the life and times of Carolina Oliphant, Lady Nairne, and perform a selection of her excellent songs.  She lived from 1766 to 1845, so was a contemporary of Sir Walter Scott and James Hogg as well as of Robert Burns.  Many of her songs are well known, for example Bonnie Charlie (Will ye no come back again?) and Rowan Tree, but many who love these songs are unaware that it was Lady Nairne who wrote them.  We have a great story and wonderful music to look forward to.
