As a lockdown project, Well Road Productions commissioned a new body of music to celebrate the poetry of the famous Borderer, Will H Ogilvie. These wonderful and evocative tunes are so special that we have enlisted the talents of four of the country’s top musicians to record and perform them.

This short tour, starting at The Maltings ,Berwick-upon-Tweed Berwick will mark the launch of the CD, The Land We Love.

This will be the first time that the four musicians will have performed together. It promises to be a very special evening’s entertainment.
