Hugh MacDiarmid's poem, with its infamously thrawn narrator, is set to music of huge imagination and vibrancy by Glasgow composer Bill Sweeney. Performed by Scotland's finest contemporary music ensemble, Red Note, this is a night of humour, inebriation, beauty, politically-charged comment, wild musical and literary invention.
