Myth/Story/Song – Local Tales and Legends

To coincide with our new exhibition Literary Cities: Edinburgh, MoLI is delighted to announce a series of four events at the museum in April, May, September and October, featuring some of the most important established and up-and-coming names in Irish and Scottish writing and music.  Our second event, Local Tales and Legends, taking place on 5 May at 8pm, will explore the contemporary resonance of folk myth from both countries, and the enduring artistic inspiration of local legend. Irish language author Máire Zepf will join Deirdre Sullivan and Donald S. Murray for a discussion on language and the power of mythology to capture the imagination of readers of all ages. The event will also feature performances from Brigid Mae Power and Alasdair Roberts.

Kindly supported by the Scottish Government in Ireland, the British Embassy, and Ebow, the digital agency.
