The Pulling of the Rose: a reimagined Tam Lin in music, song and spoken word

Created and presented by: Kirsty Law (song) Kirsty Logan (spoken word) Esther Swift (harp) Available to tour March-December 2023

When the flints of the old strike with the new, what story can be lit from the sparks? The ancient ballad of Tam Lin is reimagined in a near future dystopian Scotland, exploring themes of bodily autonomy, reproductive rights and sexual freedom. Through original harp music, song and spoken word, Kirsty Law, Kirsty Logan and Esther Swift tell a thoroughly modern story built on the bones of ancient wisdom.

Here is an audio sample from the inaugural performance, recorded live at the Scottish International Storytelling Festival, Edinburgh, Netherbow Theatre
