To a Bard

December 2009 and January 2010, the Artform music project collaborated with the Paragon Ensemble, Sense Scotland, Indepen-dance and Riddrie Resource Centre on a performance piece telling the story of the life of Robert Burns.

The music, dance and theatre work was conceived and performed by a group of Learning Disabled Adults together with professional musicians, dancers and actors, augmented by a number of music students from the RSAMD and the University of Strathclyde.
Three hugely successful performances took place at the Platform Theatre at the Bridge complex, Easterhouse in January 2010. Some of the music was later recorded for playing at the Burns Museum in Alloway.
