Heal & Harrow
Hugely acclaimed on its release in album form, Heal and Harrow pays a humanising tribute to the victims of the Scottish Witch Trials. One of the darkest periods of Scotland’s history: an estimated 2,500 people were executed, 80% of which were thought to have been women. This new writing is based on specially commissioned stories by celebrated author Mairi Kidd – tales inspired by and in remembrance of real women who were persecuted and tried as witches and characters from folklore and mythology enshrined in Scottish oral culture, with accompanying visuals by Alison Piper.
