Aye Write - Madame Scotia, Madam Scrap
Madame Scotia, Madam Scrap reveals the life of Héloïse Russell-Fergusson (1896-1970), the pioneering clarsach player who combined a fearless determination with mischief, eccentric creativity with surprising practicality. Well known in pockets across the world, there is widespread curiosity about her story and a burgeoning awareness amongst musicologists and musicians of the almost prophetic quality of her later work.
Author Hélène Witcher will be in conversation with writer and award winning journalist Anni Donaldson and we’ll be showing a selection of items from Héloïse Russell-Fergusson’s archive which is lodged in the Mitchell Library.’
