In a Sma Room

HOSPITALFIELD in Arbroath will host “In a Sma Room” on Saturday, June 1 in a performance which will celebrate the bittersweet life of Perth poet William Soutar.

In a Sma Room blends jazz and folk-inspired music and drama in a show unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Vocalist Debra Salem, pianist Paul Harrison and guitarist Kevin MacKenzie have composed new musical settings to some of Soutar’s most haunting lyrics, and perform them here with Perth violinist Patsy Reid.

The show is directed by Sandy Thomson, scripted by Ajay Close, acted by Jennifer Bates and was commissioned by the Friends of William Soutar Society.

The evening begins at 7.30 pm. Tickets priced £10 from friends@hospitalfield.org.uk or 0782 5872370.
