This year, thanks to support from The Curious Fund (Film Hub North, BFI Film Audience Network) we will tour our new commission Journey to the Isles: Marjory Kennedy-Fraser which premiered during HippFest 2022, to seven locations in Scotland. 

Full details and dates to be announced.

Journey to the Isles with Mairi Campbell and Marion Kenny.
Video produced by Strangeboat

Marjory Kennedy-Fraser began collecting Hebridean songs in 1905, fired by a desire to preserve the musical riches of the islands' people. These disarming films, made by Kennedy-Fraser herself, provide a snapshot of her work and the culture of the people she devoted her life to studying. Joining us on this one-of-a-kind journey to the Isles will be acclaimed performer Marion Kenny , one of Scotland's leading storytellers, and award-winning musician, singer and songwriter Mairi Campbell.

This event has been supported by the Year of Stories 2022 Community Stories Fund. This fund is being delivered in partnership between VisitScotland and Museums Galleries Scotland with support from The National Lottery Heritage Fund thanks to National Lottery players.
