Details

A Scotsman's journey to the Western Front in WW1, narrated by Iain Anderson and musically illustrated by the finest singers in the Scottish Acoustic scene.

Far, Far From Ypres was originally conceived as a celebration of World War One songs and poems, mainly Scottish, for a double album on Greentrax Recordings. It evolved into a stage production at the 2012 Celtic Connections Festival where it was described by the Festival Director, Donald Shaw as, brilliant. An Edinburgh Festival Fringe performance led a reviewer to write an inspiringly convivial experience where the audience joined the performers in choruses that echoed into the deep spaces of the hall and a standing ovation raised the roof of the Queen's Hall for several minutes at the end of the show. It was a stirring end to a night honouring a terrible tragedy, one that left the entire audience moved and sombre, but strangely elated.

However, the main inspiration for the production comes from the sacrifice made by so many Scots, men and women, in World War One.
