Spent a great afternoon with George Gunn recording some of his choices of poetry for inclusion in my residency work for Mackay Country.
As is the thing we set up a portable recording studio in George’s living room for the purpose (see photo).
Some very interesting works from George including the complete poem that I took the phrases from to include in the track ‘A Northerly Land’ which is in fact entitled ‘A Walk in Strathnaver’. George is writing about following in the footsteps of Rob Donn a bard local to the area in the 17th to 18th Century.
You can check out the track in the little player to the right.
