The Lost Words: Spell Songs

Spell Songs is a musical companion piece to The Lost Words by author Robert Macfarlane and artist Jackie Morris; a celebrated 'spell book' rich with poetic rhythms and imagined birdsong that naturally invited a musical response. The 8 incredible artists who created Spell Songs will be joined on stage by Robert Macfarlane himself and the acclaimed and award-winning artist Jackie Morris, one of the authors of the original Lost Words book, will be painting live on stage during the performance, conjuring magic with ink and brush!

Spell Songs gathers together eight remarkable musicians whose music engages deeply with landscape and nature, to respond to the creatures, art and language of The Lost Words: Karine Polwart, Julie Fowlis, Seckou Keita, Kris Drever, Kerry Andrew, Rachel Newton, Beth Porter and Jim Molyneux.
