‘I’ll Mak Sikkar’ – A Northern Odyssey


‘I’ll mak sikkar’ (I’ll make sure) is the clan Kirkpatrick motto, which
was ‘borne out of a bloody bout in an ancient game of thrones. I, proud
daughter of a clan chief will tell you how it came to be…’

Storyteller Ruth Kirkpatrick and musician Sarah McFadyen present a rare
distillation of family history blended with stories and songs from
Scotland. A land hewn by the music of the tides, the words in the wind
and the deeds of its people.

They will breathe fresh life into ancient tales from the misty North
populated by selkies, stoorworms and sorcerers and they are sure to sing
of the inevitable change, which we all must face, of the loss of the old and the embrace of the unexpected new. Supported by FATE.
