Elsa Jean McTaggart Elsa McTaggart presents When The World Stood Still



Boiler suits, beanies and a barrow! That’s what was waiting for this musical duo when lockdown hit! A truly mesmerising twinning of music and storytelling of how a global community was formed and came together to support each other through uncertain times, an album was composed, a book written and a DVD filmed. A tale of one couples tuneful account of survival during Covid-19 interwoven with original compositions on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, penny whistles, bouzouki and accordion. A Celtic fusion of Hebridean melody celebrating life, sorrow, uncertainty, joy and laughter.

This show was part of our Edinburgh Fringe 2021 Edinburgh Fringe Programme
