There Was A Soldier ...
Several stalwarts of the Linlithgow Folk Festival Association have performed with There Was A Solider since its first performance in 2014. There Was a Soldier... is a compelling tribute to the people of Edinburgh, the Lothians and beyond, during WWI, and to Bangour (Edinburgh's War Hospital). Told through music, poetry, slides and humour, it tells the story of young men who enlisted with great enthusiasm to defend their country. Includes stories of McCrae's Battalion and Dr Elsie Inglis' Scottish War Hospitals overseas.
Its final public performance will be held on Friday 5th October 2018 at Linlithgow Academy.
