On A Wing and A Prayer - Morvern

Repertoire Atlantic Drift, by Judith Weir; On A Wing and A Prayer - Morvern, by Lisa Robertson; On A Wing and A Prayer - Morvern, by Katherine Wren

On a Wing and a Prayer – doing something in the hope that you will succeed despite being insufficiently prepared. Taking this figure of speech as a starting point for humankind’s approach to the climate crisis, Nordic Viola enters into musical conversation with Lochaline composer, Lisa Robertson.

Together they explore Morvern's rainforests and the community's relationship to the land, drawing on its power and resources whilst working in harmony with nature. From coast to mountain via stream and woodland, they explore a range of emotions from the bleakness of habitat loss through the teeming life of the rainforest and towards the hope of a more harmonious existence between humankind and nature.

In a blend of instrumental and natural sound with poetic fragments, Lisa Robertson and Nordic Viola create a unique and reflective soundscape.

In the wonderful surrounds of Drimnin Chapel on the Morvern Pensinsula, audiences will have the opportunity to explore the surrounding woodlands and to meet the performers and composer before and after the show to share their own experiences of our nature and environment. Refreshments will be available.

All are welcome at this relaxed performance and there is space to move in and out of the performance setting if desired.
