Vic Galloway Jura Unbound, Night of Music and Words

Siobhan Wilson

A night of Music and Words. This evening was a highly successful one with Scottish voices. Galloway has written a book 'Songs in the Key of Fife.'  He spoke of the creative people and places - was it the coastline of Fife or that you use your imagination of die he wondered.

Andrew Mitchell of the Hazy Janes began the evening at the Jura Unbound at Edinburgh International book festival 2014, with a strong set of songs on both piano and guitar.  We were treated to powerful and moving readings by authors - Anneliase Mackintosh, Kate Tough and Liam Murray Bell.
Later we had the beautiful voice of Scottish songstress Siobhan Wilson.
