For over 50 years, the great bothy balladeer Jock Duncan’s other vocation was interviewing north-east Scotland’s Great War veterans, faithfully transcribing their Doric dialects on an old manual typewriter. Published in 2019, the resulting book was edited by piper and professor Gary West, who features here in his own eponymous musical play inspired by these testimonies, alongside Scott Gardiner, Chris Wright and son Charlie West. “Brilliant show: powerful, funny, moving” (James Robertson)

As a tradition-bearer, Duncan has few peers, but among that select company is fellow Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame inductee, Joe Aitken, who won a record sixth Bothy Ballad Champion of Champions title in 2018.

A limited number of additional tickets will be released through via the Tron Theatre Box Office from November 24th.
