Internationally acclaimed, multi award-winning Song of the Goat Theatre (Fringe First winners in 2012 & 2004) have been commissioned by Summerhall to create a new performance drawing on Scotland’s ancient musical traditions. Return to the Voice has been inspired by laments for death and love, working songs, story-telling songs, psalms, wedding songs, and songs of exile. It will be a passionate exploration of the spiritual and human importance of memory and music, staged in the stunning surroundings of St Giles Cathedral.

Each show will be preceded by a short concert from Gaelic and Scottish musicians: Linda Nicleòid, Gillebrìde MacMillan, Alasdair MacIlleBhàin, Joy Dunlop, Gillie Mackenzie, Màiri MacLeod, Allan Macdonald. Please see here for more information and to see who is playing which date.
