LADY NAIRNE – SCOTLAND’S SECRET SONGSTRESS

Lady Nairne (1766-1845) was one of Scotland’s most prolific songwriters, writing around one hundred songs. Many of these became classics and are still sung today. Examples are ‘Charlie is my darling’, ‘The Rowan tree’ and ‘Will ye no come back again’.

Yet, throughout her life she maintained strict anonymity as a songwriter, never receiving credit for her achievements. Some people even believed that her works were unpublished songs of Robert Burns.

Who was this mysterious songstress? All will be revealed by, Dave Dewar as narrator and interviewer, actor and musician Wendy Weatherby as Lady Nairne, performing her songs on cello and voice, and Sandy Brechin as the music publisher, also playing accordion and keyboards.

Written and directed by Dave Dewar.
