CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).

A songbook from 1851 used by two brothers; one a folk songwriter, the other the 1st piper to Queen Victoria. In its pages, the seeds for a life of music that would take a man from the Scottish Highlands to Buckingham Palace.

After 18 years in Scotland, brought up with Ceilidh bands and choirs he, like his ancestor, left Scotland to follow a musical calling. And now, after 18 years in Wakefield, Jamie will take the music from that 166 year old piece of history to ask some timeless questions. And using just his fiddle and his stories, he will try and answer them. A Romantic Destination is a show about home, about the connecting lines that run through our lives and beyond, and the part music can play in piecing it all together.
