Fiona Kennedy’s exciting new music production, The Kist, comes to Glasgow’s Oran Mor this summer

Fiona Kennedy’s live stage production The Kist is coming to Glasgow’s Oran Mor from 26 -29th July and 2-5th August this summer.

A musical celebration of our heritage through song and story, The Kist embraces all genres, from ancient tribal Gaelic to Paolo Nutini!

The Kist is a vibrant production, giving a platform to new and established outstanding talent.  Joining Fiona Kennedy (Celtic Connections, BBC’s Record Breakers, West End Show Alfie, Highland Heartbeat) is an exceptional cast including George Drennan (Taggart, Lip Service, Rab C Nesbitt), James Muldoon, Rachel Oates and Ruairidh McDonaldThe Kist is directed by award winning actor, writer and director John Bett (Rab C Nesbitt, The Golden Compass, Rebus, Para Handy, Enquirer).  

The production is a rich mix of the Kist called Scotland: how the Scots travelled to the four corners of the earth, what we took with us and what we left behind, but has not been forgotten.

Scotland’s proud musical heritage has been scattered throughout the world.  Thousands of Scots have left these shores, whether this was for the promise of a new life, an escape from poverty, forced off their land or simply seeking adventure.  They packed their most important and cherished belongings in their kists (chests) and set off on their journeys.   The Kist aims to tell some of these stories from not only a Scottish but a worldwide perspective.

The cast includes a mix of established performers and some exciting up-and-coming new talent.
