The Gallant Sixteen and Twine it Weel

Celtic Connections: Inspired by 18th century Ayrshire weavers, The Gallant Sixteen at the Tron Theatre traces the Scottish co-operative movement’s development.

The Gallant Sixteen and Twine it Weel

About The Gallant Sixteen and Twine it Weel

Jointly devised and performed by Christine Kydd and Fiona J Mackenzie, “Twine it weel…” explores the common ground of women’s experience in Scots and Gaelic song. From lullabies to work-songs, all the material comes from the archive at Canna House, former home of seminal folklorists John Lorne Campbell and Margaret Fay Shaw. Interweaving songs and stories with Campbell’s original sound recordings, the show also features previously unseen photographs and film footage from the 1930s and 40s, with Kydd and Mackenzie accompanied by Gillian Frame, Katie Mackenzie and Yvonne Lyon.

In 1761, sixteen weavers in the Ayrshire village of Fenwick established Britain's first documented workers’ co-operative. This pioneering event has inspired Christine Kydd and Ewan McVicar’s new collaborative performance The Gallant Sixteen, which traces the co-operative movement’s development in Scotland and beyond, up to the present day, combining traditional songs with new compositions. Completing the cast is cellist/singer and actress Seylan Baxter.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Gallant Sixteen and Twine it Weel are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
