Letters for Peace
  • Edinburgh Fringe

'Stephens daring writing and willingness to complement conventional lyricism with sonic experiment makes for a powerful experience' (Scotsman). Award-winning composer and guitarist Graeme Stephen's new work with Mr McFalls Chamber String Trio. Inspired by the stories and letters of conscientious objectors who refused to fight during the First World War. Weaving together music, spoken word and image engaging with the public perception of war and highlighting the sacrifices objectors made in the name of peace. 'Conscientious objectors do not believe that violence can cure violence, or that militarism can exorcise the spirit of militarism' (Bertrand Russell). www.madeinscotlandshowcase.com
