Friday 31 August, 7.30pm
Acclaimed production of WW1 songs, poems and stories, following the terrifying journey of a Scot to the trenches and back. This production features many of the finest Scottish traditional singers and has received standing ovations throughout its triumphant Scottish tour.
“It was a beautifully crafted show and there should be some way of letting everyone in the world experience it. Come back anytime” Donald Shaw Director of Celtic Connections.
“Far, far from Ypres was a fitting memorial to the Scottish contribution in the First World War, and without being overtly political, it powerfully reminds us of the horrors of war and the individuals and communities touched by it. Thank you Celtic Connections for taking this project on board – the sell-out audience showed their appreciation with a standing ovation”. STV online
“A standing ovation raised the roof of the Queen’s Hall for several minutes after the show had finished. It was a stirring end to a night honouring a terrible tragedy, one that left the entire audience moved and sombre, but strangely elated” Broadway Baby.
