Details

Bereaved Scottish father Tom and his teenage son Murdo take an emotional journey from the Highlands to the US, where Murdo hears zydeco (blues) music for the first time. Murdo, an accordionist, hasn’t played since the death of his mother, but that changes when he meets retired zydeco legend Queen Monzee-ay and her family. Murdo starts to play the accordion again, fusing the music of his home country with zydeco, and helping heal family wounds. Written by Booker-winning Scottish author James Kelman.

Followed by a Q&A and music with star Neil Sutcliffe. Presented in association with Celtic Connections 2019.
