The Village and the Road – Tom Pow and the Galloway Agreement


‘All human life is here, and if we cannot easily express what has been lost in the decline of rural places, we surely know it’s gone’ – Patrick Laurie

The Village and The Road 

A personal and collective story about rural depopulation, told through storytelling, live music and theatre. Poet and friend to Birlinn, Tom Pow draws on his travels for this emotive journey exploring abandonment of the countryside, refugee crises and the great thinning of the natural world, whilst The Galloway Agreement musicians draw on their wide experience of European musical traditions, enlarging the emotional landscape and driving the narrative.
