Crannog Connections - African and Celtic Music and Stories

Concert: Saturday 21st October
7pm for 7.30pm - 9pm
Workshop: Saturday 21st October 10.30-12 noon at Tombreck

The Centre is delighted to be involved in this special evening of traditional African and Celtic music, song, movement and storytelling together with screenings from Africa and Highland Perthshire.


Musician Henry 'Izo' Anyanga and dancer Adam Chienjo join local storyteller and musician Claire Hewitt in the Crannog for this unique one-off evening of music, movement, storytelling and screening.  

Izo and Adam developed their creative roots in the streets and neighbourhoods of Nairobi, Kenya and are official Perth 'artists in residence' during October.  They will be heading up to Loch Tay accommpanied by Su Grierson, Perthshire Visual Artist, as part of her LookLook Project to perform at this very special evening around the log-fire in the Crannog Roundhouse.

Izo will be playing African drums and the Nyatiti and the Litungu, both East African stringed instruments, sometimes in partnership with Claire and sometimes peforming songs from his solo album 'Step by Step' while Adam will be performing his fluent 'confined space' interpretive movement.

Booking is essential for the performance: tickets can be purchased by telephoning us at the Scottish Crannog Centre on + 44 (0)1887 830583.  Numbers are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.  

The event will start at 7pm for 7.30pm and finish at 9pm.  Tickets are £14 for adults and £7 for children.  The event is not suitable for under 7s. 


In addition, Izo and Adam will also be holding an African drumming and movement workshop during the morning of 21st October at The Big Shed at Tombreck, Loch Tay.  Participants will learn African drumming and percussive rythms together with simple rythmic movement. 

All levels of physical mobility are welcome together with children of 7 years + who must be accommpanied by an adult at all times while on the premises.  Adam is a teacher and choreographer for a mixed ability dance group in Kenya and understands the needs of those with limited movement.  

Again, booking is essential and tickets can be purchased by calling us at the Centre.  Numbers for this workshop are limited so please ensure you book early.

The workshop starts at 10.30 and finishes at 12 noon.  Tickets are £14 for adults and £7 for children.  This event is not suitable for under 7s.
