Follow the In the Wake of Neil Gunn blog
Mike Vass has launched his new website, www.inthewakeofneilgunn.com, with gorgeous artwork from Lizzy Doe. He’ll be spending the month of May sailing round the West Coast of Scotland recreating the voyage made in 1937 by writer Neil Gunn. Along the way he’ll be visiting some of the communities Gunn originally wrote about, meeting and performing for the people who live there now and exchanging stories about the changes in the region. Read more about the project here.
As he goes he and the team (skipper David Vass, guest musicians including Jennifer Port, Hamish Napier and Innes Watson, and project manager Charlotte Hathaway) will be writing blogs about the journey. Follow the blog to catch regular snippets of music, video and news from the trip. The crew will also be joined by film makers from Salmon Films who are making a documentary about the project. Follow the blog here to be kept up to date.
This project wouldn’t be possible without the generous help of Creative Scotland, Enterprise Music Scotland, House of Lochar publishers, and Calmac Ferries.
