Christina: a new folk performance

Last night, in Brechin Town House, I was fortunate to be among the audience for this new folk performance by Essa Flett: a beautiful imagination of the life Miss Christina Gib (1824-1863).

Essa Flett, a young, award-winning musician has brought Christina alive in a way that no manuscript alone could do. In a wonderful [multi-media] performance Essa took us on her exploration of Christina Gib’s world (then and now) as based on Christina’s surviving musical notebook.

You can follow the Christina Gib Project here.
