What a privilege it was to spend time in Greenock, it really felt like coming home. Every time I visited All Saints Primary School as we prepared for the show together, I drove along the Clyde, crossing it on the Erskine Bridge and feeling its deep waters and beautiful countryside calling me home and to a wonderful opportunity to discover women in science then and now!
Fife turned out to be a treasure trove of women scientists past, present and future! Kirkcaldy Old Kirk hosted the performance featuring Doctor Adeline Campbell & 5 of her sisters, born to the minister there in the late C19th; Mary Somerville who grew up nearby in Burntisland and 7 incredible Astronomers and Physicists from the University of St Andrews

An Cridhe on the Isle of Coll is a fantastic venue to visit. We created music there with children from the local primary school about the raucous, but endangered Corncrake in collaboration with the RSPB nature reserve on the Island……
