Ando Glaso Roma Cultural Festival
Tales of a Travelling Scotland
Sun 28 August 2022
As part of Scotland’s Year of Stories and funded by Museums and Galleries Scotland, Ando Glaso has commissioned four artists from Scotland’s GRT (Gypsy, Roma, Traveller) community to create a programme that will showcase the cultural heritage of travelling people.
Legendary storyteller Jess Smith will team up with three outstanding musicians – Ciaran Ryan, Kevin Whyte and Ian MacGregor – to explore their shared GRT heritage and perform a new body of work. The programme will tell the tales of this vibrant community in the same ways that their history has been preserved and passed on for centuries; through music, songs and storytelling.
