2 tracks from 'An Unrban Seascape' EP 

This EP was written as part of a Coastword residency in Dunbar, East Lothian. The songs explore the human relationship with the Firth of Forth. It was recorded in Belhaven Parish Church, with experimental improvised organ accompaniment. Written and performed by Kirsty Law, recorded by Dave House of The Noisefloor. 

1. Foundered

 

This poem/song uses the names and stories of wrecks that have taken place over many years in the Firth of Forth. 

2. Of Water and War

2 tracks from my debut album, 'Shift', released 2014.

1. The Wild Lass / The Twa Magicians

 

The Wild Lass was written by poet Marion Angus, set to music by Kirsty Law. The Twa Magicians is a traditional ballad, arranged by Kirsty Law.

The ballad describes a man chasing a woman down, shape-shifting as they go. Eventually she has to give in. In this case, it is sad how relevant it is to sing this song today despite it having been around around for hundreds of years. 

2. Wee Song

 

Written by Kirsty Law in response to a poem by poet collabortor Tessa Ransford OBE.
