A 2016 sell-out hit at Edinburgh International Festival, Karine Polwart’s enchanting and poetic one-woman show explores the hidden stories of motherhood through story-telling, song and personal memoir. It is a life-affirming piece combining themes of nature, maternity, ancestry, myth and history. With magical visuals and an exquisite live score, Polwart creates an immersive sound with the purity of her singing voice.
