The Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra return for their fourteenth annual festival of improvisation!

On the opening night, GIO and the Gaelic arts organisation Ceòl's Craic will explore themes of migrant
identities and nature. Singers Debbie Armour and Alasdair Whyte and saxophonist Alípio C Neto are featured guests. This collaboration will include new graphic scores by GIO bassist Una MacGlone, spoken word, song and soundscapes based on poems from Fo Bhlàth (Flourishing), a recent collection from Glasgow’s first poet laureate, Niall O’Gallagher who will also perform.
