DID YOU REALLY WANT TO WORK ON THE LAND, DAD?

September 7 → 8:00 pm9:00 pm

The Orkney Club, Harbour Street, Kirkwall

Not so long ago the Clyde Valley was the fruit basket of Scotland. There were apples and pears in many varieties, plums and gooseberries, peaches and strawberries, and then tomatoes as well. Today the remnants of some of the old orchards can still be seen, while others lie abandoned, a home for wildlife. The Lanarkshire Songwriters have gathered memories from growers and pickers of the great days of the Lanarkshire fruit industry, and turned them into songs with schools and members of the community. Three of them, Billy Stewart, John Young and Wilf Yule, tell the story in words and music, with help from Andy Munro and local musicians.
