Walter Scott and Song Launch

Join staff from the University of Aberdeen's Department of Museums and Special Collections and Walter Scott Research Centre to celebrate the launch of our online exhibition Walter Scott and Song: Retuning the Harp of the North.

With an introduction by Professor Ali LumsdenExhibition Curator and Director of the Walter Scott Research Centre, this online event will introduce you to a lesser-known Scott – one who was fascinated by folklore, traditional songs and ballads, and whose poetry inspired popular music, Italian opera and theatrical productions for generations to come.

Tune in to listen to performances of Scott-inspired songs, and to delve, virtually, into the Scott book and archive collections held by the University of Aberdeen.

We can't wait to see you there so make sure to book your place. We will share joining information for the event a few days beforehand with those registered.
